    Usually around 198 average =]
    Standard dnb track is 170-174bpm
    Then just add your % you use on the deck of the original bpm to the original bpm of the track
    Think thats the right equation lol

    same here also helps to spin around this because if your using technics you have plenty of pitch space to lock slower tunes

    I tend to stick to between 178-180... This is ideal for me, adds a bit of energy with out being too fast.
