Ten days ago I posted the Wick It mixtape mashing up The Black Keys and Big Boi. Now we got a video to go along with "Everlasting Shine Blockaz." Big Boi is currently touring with The Black Keys. A collaboration seems inevitable.
It's time to get lovey dubby with "Guns of Brooklyn" from the highly recommended Diplo and Santogold Top Ranking mixtape. I also suggest checking out Diplo's Mad Decent Worlwide Radio via Itunes. It's free and good for your ears.
Dilla's mother sets the tone with these words:
This was his wish during his illness, that he be able to give his gift to the world. He was able to live long enough to give the gift back and it will last a lifetime.
Murs and Slug are underrated story tellers. They rap about daily struggles, loved ones and their respective hometowns of LA(Murs) and Minneapolis(Slug). Just listen to these tracks.
Vancouver natives, Swollen Members, remix La Roux's In for the Kill. I've read that it will be the first track on their upcoming album "Daggermouth." I've also read that it won't be featured on the album.
This remix is stellar and brings me back to college days of listening to Swollen Member's "Balance" and "Bad Dreams."
The Polish Ambassador brings us two dope remixes of Outkast's Wheels of Steel. They're both catchy, one has the bass thumping and the other is 7 minutes long and trancey. Neither sound like the original. The man responsible for these remixes puts it best:
It's only natural that outkast get up in the remix action. These are some of the more innovative cats in the spotlight today, but you already know that. Always impressed with what they bring to the table, which is why they get "the royal treatment." That sounded sexual. Here's the remix of Wheels of Steel. Completely different from the original, cut, diced, electrofied. with some boomin' bass. Hells. Yes.Stay tuned for more electro inspired remixes.
