Music Radar: Top 10 Hottest Club Tracks for August

For this months hottest tracks, I focused on what seems to be working in Saratoga Springs lately. However, i’m sure these songs would hit just as hard in albany or anywhere in the capital region where a great DJ is playing. Download them through your music pools and other sources (that I won’t tell the government about).

1. Despacito – Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee Ft Justin Bieber

If you aren’t playing despacito yet, where have you been? This song has become essential for weddings, bars, clubs, and supermarkets. I personally recommend the DJ Smerk edit, which speeds up the tempo slightly to 100 bpm. You can get it here on DJ City.

2. DJ Khaled – Wild Thoughts ft. Rihanna, Bryson Tiller

Okay, so is it in some ways very similar to Santana’s original Maria Maria? Yes. But it’s catchy and has enough extra beat for girls to like it. In fact, i’ve been getting tons of requests for it. For this reason, I say it’s certainly a must play track for this summer.

3. Kendrick Lamar – Humble

“My left stroke just went viral” is one of those lines that everyone loves to shout out. With a great beat and memorable lyrics, this song will be big way past the summer.

 4. Iyaz – Replay (Kees Sjansen Remix)

An amazing soca/island style remix of the classic Iyaz song replay, this song mixes extremely well with the rest of the summer hits at 100 bpm, plus you’ll get points for throwing in an interesting throwback.

5. French Montana – Unforgettable ft. Swae Lee

Great beat, catchy hook. Solid summer vibes that any reggae/spanish/moombaton crowds will love.

6. Bruno Mars – That’s What I Like

Awesome singalong with a bit of a sexy hint. Play it in your last hour of club time and you’ll have many guys and girls going home happy.

7. DJ Khaled – I’m the One ft. Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne

A bit of a slower jam, but super popular with a killer lineup of guest artists featured on the track. Believe it or not, it works great during peak hour.

8. Liam Payne – Strip That Down

Another mid-tempo hip hop song with a great hook. Much more dance-able than some of the selections on this list.

9. Jason Derulo – Swalla

Falls great into a Spanish or Moombahton set. It’s been working great up in Saratoga Springs this summer so far.

10. Playboi Carti – Magnolia

This song has been killing it during more urban hip hop sets.


Thanks for checking out my list of music for the month! Be sure to stay tuned for more tracks each month.

Keep in mind, these aren’t in any specific order, but if i’m getting tons of requests for them, i’m sure you will be soon enough too.
