Too Close - Next

tempo: 99-100 bpm

The DJ's Take: Track #7 in mix #62 (12:54):

If you're going down in history as a one-hit wonder, this would be a good one to go out on. Got a lot of play on the local hiphop radio station when I was in high school. The lyrics make me think of that infamous photo of Pitbull getting a little 'too close' to J. Lo during a concert. Too relatable.

On the more technical side, the lengthy vocal-free intro makes it easy to mix in for a set or a mashup.

Some key-compatible music from 100 to 105 bpm:
