This trend of mixing old school hip hop and R&B tracks with new dance and electric sounds is on the up, and this mix I found is an absolute GEM.
French producer Lucas Chambon takes The Fugees‘ “Ready or Not” and creates higher vocals to start the verses and then switches to an alto in the chorus. The more laid back, chill beats sends you into some awesome, ambient trance, making you question whether you’re still at work at 3:30 on a Thursday afternoon or inside a lounge somewhere on the beach in Miami…
One can only dream!
The Friday before the much anticipated August long weekend deserves the right kick off, so we’re mixing an old school classic with new school electronics today.
English group Bondax throws their familiar piano tones and transcending vibes against Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” track to make one cool and sexy remix. Hey-o hey-o hey-o hey-ooooooo!
Beyonce‘s surprise album has only been live for just over a week and djs are already all over her music – they liked it so they put a remix on it.
Music producer, dj and songwriter Yashar Gasanov mixed Beyonce’s “Yoncé” and “Partition” singles into a slow-moving, deep house and techno twist. With the bass in tact and the piano adding to the rhythm, Gasanov’s crafts a remix to be obsessed about. As Queen B puts it, he “sneezed on the beat and the beat got sicker, Yoncé y’all on his mouth like liquor.”
