Let's Ride (SNBRN Remix)
When one reads through the bevy of garble that is much of dance music blogging; a lot of the same words and expressions seem to get thrown around from writers who simply may not have the firm grasp of music theory that was once required or expected of music writers. Terms like “banger”, “sick bassline”, “good vibes” and more have sadly become an accepted reality of track descriptions throughout much of the dance music blogosphere. So it comes with wholehearted excitement that this writer will for the first time have nothing to describe this one other than to say that without a doubt, SNBRN‘s remix of The Game’s staple “Let’s Ride” is an absolute G-House monster. On the heels of remixing Indiana’s “Heart On Fire” and in the same vein as his “21 Questions” remix, the So-Cal groove layer returns to TMN with perhaps his largest sounding remix to date. Filled with punchy kicks, clean snares and a good ol’ fashioned chunky analog bassline; SNBRN perfectly encapsulates all of the The Game’s fierce gangster swag while simultaneously pulling it into a completely new sector of the club. When queried about the tune, he relayed “So I wanted to follow up my 21 Questions remix with another hip hop throwback. I found Doctor’s Advocate in the back of my car and knew I had to remix something from the album. Let’s Ride just stood out to me and so it began. I wanted to take the best parts of the original track while infusing a fresh g-house club style facelift.” Well, we certainly think SNBRN’s hit the mark again, and can’t wait to hear this one on a huge stack of club monitors for what will most likely be for at least the next year.
