This Is The Remix!

After recently profiling some dope new music, it’s time to take the next logical step and provide our loyal readers with the freshest remixes of those very same tunes. After scanning our favourite blogs (see the list to the right), we humbly present our favourite re-interpretations of new heat from Erykah Badu, Cadence Weapon, Buck 65, as well as remixes of classic joints by Beck and Pete Rock. You can thank us later. For now, get your listen on!

Ever since the incomparable Ms. Erykah Badu announced that “Honey” would be her new album’s lead single, bedroom producers across the interweb have been scrambling to rework it. All Up In Your Earhole has an excellent post on the subject, featuring four different remixes of the song including one by the author himself. Of the two remixes listed above, the second is from the Earhole post, while the first is from Fly Music.

Cadence Weapon – House Music (A1 Bassline Remix) (Afterparty Babies, 2008)

Although Cadence Weapon flirts with electronica throughout Afterparty Babies, on “House Music” he comes closest to fully embracing the genre’s sound. The above remix completes the process, layering Cadence Weapon’s raps over a full out house beat (check out the 3:40-ish mark if you don’t believe).

Buck 65 – Way Back When (Ghislain Poirier Remix) (Situation, 2007)

This is probably my least favourite remix of the lot. Poirier’s beat works well with Buck 65’s lyrics, but it isn’t as catchy as the Skratch Bastid original. I suppose this is an example of a remix missing the mark. Either way, give it a listen.

And finally, check out these two remixes of some older classics. The “Where It’s At” remix is long (~12 minutes), but interesting enough to warrant at least one listen and the Pete Rock remix is by Pete Rock, so you know it’s bangin’!

Beck – Where It’s At (UNKLE Remix) (Odelay (Deluxe Edition), 2008)

  7. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say.
