The playlist this week features up-tempo tunes to match up-tempo workouts.
The merits that compel a song onto the Top 40 lists are often the same attributes runners look for in a workout jam. Unfortunately, most radio tracks right now hover around 100 beats-per-minute, so speed is hard to find. Nonetheless, we’ve compiled 10 recent fast tracks to increase your cadence.
On the mainstream front, you’ll find dance from festival favorite Marshmello, rock from veterans Blue October, and a soulful single from arena staples Kings of Leon. If you’re looking for something completely new, consider a 184 BPM anthem from DD Walker, a stew of different sounds from Mondo Cozmo, or the throwback sounds of Water District.
Whichever path you choose—the one most traveled or the one least traveled—the selections below will get you on your way. Fire one up and head on out.
