Next Music deadbeef terminal command

I have recently bought a new external keyboard . there is 12 customizable extra buttons on it . I'v set music key for deadbeef (using keyboard/application shortcuts) . I want to set one button to go next music from the list . what is the right command to bound a shortcut?

Did you try this?
