For a beginners DJ, more easy to mix songs with the same BPM (Beat per Minute) rather than to mix a song with different BPM. Its very natural because lack of mixing skills (you should always practice this one dude...). So how to make it easy?. The answer is as simple as a song playlist we make before we plays the song with the same BPM.
To organize the song we can use the advantage of software that specialize on BPM counting/ analyzer or detection. Many variants outside there to run this function such as Mixed in Key, BPM Analyzer, BPM Counter, Rekordbox, BPM Detector.
We can check the Bpm online too right now some of website dedicate to detected song's BPM. Give it a try to songbpm.com, or bpm tool, in general they offers exact same function as a bpm counter.
Actually if you use DJ Software like Virtual DJ, Traktor or Stanton they already have built in feature to accommodate Bpm counter.
