It's the beginning of November and it's getting a bit chilly. Well I guess not if your in So Cal. Well everywhere else in the country it's getting cold. So here are some hot beats for you all to stay warm. Enjoy. (Click on the pics for the tracks on iTunes)

Club/Party - 3.5/5
The Ladies - 2/5
Lastability - 3.5/5

Kanye West's album is about to be released in a couple of weeks and here comes one of his other singles. Hot off of the album this song goes pretty hard. Not a true club banger, but this song will be remixed with other songs. You won't be disappointed and Halloween doesn't have to last only one day.

Kid Cudi - Mr. Rager (Explicit) ~102 bpm

Kid Cudi is becoming of one my favorite artists. I really like his style of music and the beats are so smooth. So his album is about to be released in a week and of course a hot single comes off of it. This isn't exactly a club banger either, but more of a plug for Kid Cudi. Again this song can be easily mixed into a more uptempo beat and it can rock the place. Check it out.

This song has has the 'ol school 90's feel. It's because it is, the beat was taken from that era. Still this artist made this track more modern. I like the feel of it and it can be a good club banger.

This track makes you happy. I guess so more than others, but this song has a good feel to it. I guess you just have to listen to it to find out. It's very technoish too. Not a bad song by any means. I would play this like at a New Year's Bash or something.

Lloyd feat. 50 Cent - Let's Get It In (Explicit) ~99 bpm

A smooth slow banger. This one is a good one from Lloyd and even 50 Cent. This can be a great mix from the more uptempo beats. This song won't probably last, but it is still a good song nonetheless.

Flo Rida - Come With Me ~153 bpm

Club/Party - 3/5
The Ladies - 3/5
Lastability - 3/5

Most of the time when you think of Flo Rida you think of club bangers. Well this is more of a slow banger. It's still pretty good, but you will have to remix this and mix in it with your other tracks. I like the song, but it's a bit on the slower side.

This song would be great if you can mix this in with other songs. By itself it's just okay. It's not too bad, but if you need new songs to play then try out this one.

This track is pretty hot. Something definitely to bump to. This song is catered more to the parties, but I could feel it at the clubs too.

Good 'ol Ciara is back. And back haaard. This track is fast, bangin', and out of control. I definitely recommend this song in the clubs/parties and basically anywhere where you don't have to be quiet. Now can you keep up with song? That's the question.

This song goes hard too. All the artists on Lloyd Bank's track tears it up. The beat reminds me of an old school 8-bit game with hard bass. This song would be a great mix with other tracks. So why not play this song first? Start It Up...

N.E.R.D. feat. T.I. - Party People (Explicit) ~120 bpm

N.E.R.D.'s album just came out and it again has funky beats and something a bit different for the clubs. These are the three songs I recommend, but their whole album is pretty good. You really can't go wrong with any of the songs.

I've always liked Nelly Furtado. Especially after she hooked up with Timbaland for the beats. This song is fun. It really puts you in high spirits. So I recommend this song for a good time.

So Pitbull's new album is out. And I have to say it's not too shabby. You won't be disappointed in any of his songs, because any of them can be played on the dance floor. I like this song the most, because he basically remixed this song with the No Americano track. And it's a pretty good one. Check out his album.

A track from 2008. Not a well known artist, but this is a pretty good club banger. Baby Bash is on the track so that's nice. We need club bangers from all different artists so check this one out.
