No Type - Rae Sremmurd



tempo: 62.5 bpm

bpm range: 60 bpm to 65 bpm

The DJ's Take: A prime example of minimalist hiphop. Simple beat with some flourishes in the percussion, and nursery rhyme lyrics. The harpsichord makes this sound like something royalty listened to in the 1400s, lounging around the castle with nothing to do.

Hard to dance to, although this crew gives it a good effort:



All that said, the memorable hook and hit status back in 2014 make it worth an occasional spin on a pop or hiphop night. Try mixing or mashing up with:

No Complaints - Metro Boomin ft. Drake, Offset
LOVE. FEAT. ZACARI. - Kendrick Lamar, Zacari
Sign of the Times - Harry Styles
Weak - AJR
oui - Jeremih
Here - Alessia Cara
Blasé (feat. Future & Rae Sremmurd) - Ty Dolla $ign

And if you're willing to bump up a couple bpm:

The Recipe - Kendrick Lamar
Hotline Bling - Drake
No Sense - Justin Bieber ft. Travi$ Scott
I Should've Cheated - Keyshia Cole

dj mix/mashup: do you think of me [mariah carey] x always forever [bryson tiller]

Links: Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm Fun little instrumental blend of Bryson Tiller's Always Forever , which we used in mix 66 , and Mariah Carey's Do You Think of Me , which ended up on the cutting room floor. As you can see up top, I broke out the scalpel and did some slicing to make the beats match up better. Final verdict: Worth it. Follow the playlist on djcheatsheet.com

4th of July (Fireworks) - Kelis

tempo: 124 bpm the DJ's take: In terms of energy and key/note progression, I feel like this one could go well with Ne-Yo's Let's Go , Bingo Players' Cry Just A Little , Flo Rida's I Cry , and maybe the Day N Nite - Crookers Remix . Fast and danceable, with a buzzy, hypnotic bass. Definitely worth a spin in a poolside dance mix. download or stream 4th of July (Fireworks): amazon dj cheat sheet playlist
