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

Lucky You - Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas

tempo: 76-77 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: I was wondering why the phrase 'Lucky You' sounded familiar... then remembered my Lucky Brand jeans say this behind the zipper: So let's say you're on a date. Things are going well, relations commence, and your companion sees that message. Cute? Or a mood killer? Either way, that's a lot of bravado to live up to. Brings to mind Brick Tamland in Anchorman: As for the track, try mixing with: Bam - Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley PIE - Future ft. Chris Brown Stitches - Shawn Mendes download or stream Lucky You: amazon itunes

Stay - The Kid LAROI ft. Justin Bieber

tempo: 85 bpm bpm range:   85  to  90 bpm the dj's take: Song #9 in episode #65 of our mix show (22:29): Cool transition out of Scarface's Guess Who's Back ; loop that properly and you've got an interesting potential beat / mashup. And then we slide into T-Pain and Kehlani's I Like Dat to slow down the pace and take us into the home stretch. A must-spin for any pop dj - serves up a burst of bouncy energy for the youth who've been cooped up for awhile now.
