Big Boi feat. Phantogram
While a new album from Outkast seems like nothing more than a pipe dream at this point, we can at least count on Big Boi to always deliver some quality material. For the fifth installment of his “Mashup Mondays” series, Sir Lucious Left Foot brings back the funk, with an 80′s inspired remix that blends the disco stylings of Shalamar‘s “A Night To Remember” with the Phantogram assisted single, “Objectum Sexuality.” The end result is a groovy revamp that may even trump the original. We’d even go so far as to say that this remix–along with its equally impressive visuals–is the best in the series so far. We’ve still got more four more entries to go though, before we can make a full judgment on that.
Or Nah (Remix Feat. The Weeknd)
Less than a week after completely transforming Beyoncé‘s “Drunk In Love,” The Weeknd is back at it again, this time tackling the remix to Ty Dolla $ign‘s breakout single, “Or Nah,” featuring Wiz Khalifa. The Canadian crooner laces the DJ Mustard produced single with his silky smooth vocals and some rather raunchy lyrics, making for quite an interesting revamp. This is definitely one you won’t want to miss out on, and it’s certainly worth the asking price of $Free.99. Download the track above, and those of you looking for some official swag from The Weeknd should check out his Official Issue XO Cut & Sew Collection set to launch tomorrow.
Forgot About Dre (The Golden Pony Remix)
The Golden Pony have brought their afro driven deep-disco flair to The Chronic: 2001‘s “Forgot About Dre” and it’s been stuck on a permanent loop in this writer’s TMN cubicle. Paying homage to their classic influence has been the modus operandi for The Golden Pony’s remix choices lately as we’ve seen them take on Simon & Garfunkel, Tears For Fears and Daft Punk to reference a few, but our first exposure to them tackling the world of hip-hop has in our eyes been our most revered entry into the TGP production catalog. Taking its shape behind a pitched down vocal hook from the original chorus and an almost progressive-house meets indie-dance bass line and pad selection, their remix wonderfully accentuates Dre’s timeless verses. We’ve seen some admirable stabs at remixing Dr. Dre for the dance hall but no one has yet harnessed that gangster shine within a straight four-four house track in such a groovy manner until now. If your head is bobbing as unconsciously as ours and The Golden Pony’s remix of “Forgot About Dre” just has to be in your music player’s library then you’re in luck. This one is being given away as a free download, so grab it in exchange for a Facebook “like” here.

Drunk In Love Ft. JAY Z & T.I. (Watch The Duck EDM - TRAP Remix)
“Drunk In Love” is quickly becoming that single that everybody wants a piece of. This weekend alone, we’ve already heard remixes from Kanye West, Diplo, Detail and The Weeknd. Now Atlanta trapstep trio Watch The Duck are looking to get a piece of the action with their tricked out “EDM Trap” remix. Recruiting T.I. to open the track with a savvy verse, this latest reinvention is sure to quickly get the energy flowing. Between this and Diplo’s effort from the other night, it’s a tough call to say who has the better party starter on their hands. Of course, there’s no reason you can’t include both versions on your playlists as you prepare for festival season.
The unknown artist responsible for that glorious “Moves Like Ms Jackson.” Outkast cover is back with an upload to a random Soundcloud. There’s no download for this track which leads us to believe it’s an Original from our unknown prodigy. Starting off with some infectious synth work, and a melody that carries perfectly throughout the entire tune. Accompanied by some very on point, slowed raps vocals, and some funky drum work that definitely goes one deeper. There’s also some impressive vocals from our unknown prodigy singing about being “Superfriends”. The mix between Hip-Hop and Disclosure-esque House is just a taste of the future, and we can only hope there’s more where this came from. Cheers.
Drunk In Love (Feat. Kanye West & Jay Z)
If you’re a Beyoncé fan, Valentine’s day was either a blessing or a curse for you, as it seems like everybody and their mother put out a remix to the diva’s hit single, “Drunk In Love.” Arguably enough though, it doesn’t get much bigger than this. Premiered late last night by Hot 97′s Angie Martinez, this revision features a raunchy verse from the one and only Kanye West, along with some fine tuning courtesy of Mike Dean. It always make for an interesting dynamic when Yeezy hops on a single with his big brother. We’d like to think Kanye steals the show this time around, but we’ll leave the judgment up to you.
