[FILTHY TBT] Skrillex – Ruffneck Bass (Kaba Re-Rub)

With Skrillex starting Dog Blood and most recently, Jack U (his new side project with Diplo) we figured we share with you Kaba‘s Re-Rub of “Ruffneck Bass”. If you have seen him live over the last year or so this is a track he almost always plays out in his sets. Enjoy the same mind altering sound design from the original, but sped up and even more hectic. Cheers.

[FRESH] Blackstreet – No Diggity (Bondax Remix)

This is a funky remix of Blackstreet‘s anthem “No Diggity” that Bondax shared with us a couple hours ago. Anytime you have an artist sharing a rip of that is this good, we can most likely expect that it’s going to be free. There is no new on the release date yet, but none the less it’s still pure gold. This was taken from Bondax’s recent podcast XLR8R. Big ups Bondax, big ups….Cheers.

Valentina – Wolves (The Svens Remix)

Wolves (The Svens Remix)

Joe Goddard and Greco-Roman Records have built a solid reputation in part by helping break the music careers of rising electronic trendsetter T-E-E-D and Disclosure. The newest addition to their stable (whom we featured earlier this month), Valentina, already appears to be another clear cut hit for the Berlin to London collective. The sultry pop singer has seen her stock begin to rise amongst tastemakers worldwide with the release of her single “Wolves” two months ago, and while a healthy buzz has been picking up amongst the blogosphere, fans were left in limbo as the April 18 release date of her EP of the same name had been pushed back indefinitely. All has been patched up now as a June 5 date has been handed down by label brass, and in anticipation, Greco-Roman is leaking a few remixes that will surface on the release. Giving the dreary ballad a glitzy deep-house remix today is Scandinavian duo The Svens, and this one had the ol’ rump shaking harder than Wreckx n Effect did in ‘92. Featuring Valentina’s celestial vocals wrapped in a hypnotic house drum kick, The Svens managed to pair their club sound seductively with hers, creating a cut appropriate for peak-hour club sets or more turned down after-party affairs. As an even bigger midweek treat to our ninjas, the track has been offered up as a free download in anticipation of the Wolves EP drop, so do yourself a solid by getting those dance-muscles in shape and picking it up here.

[TMN Premiere] Viceroy & French Horn Rebellion – Friday Nights (Jessie Andrews Remix)

Viceroy & French Horn Rebellion
Friday Nights (Jessie Andrews Remix)

Earlier in the month we hipped you to Viceroy and French Horn Rebellion‘s funky “Friday Nights”, a nu-disco tune so catchy it makes every day feel like a crazed, boozy jumping off point to the weekend. The collaborative pair will soon release a remixes EP, and it’ll include this awesome rework by Jessie Andrews, a Los Angeles DJ and actress. Andrews strips away the funk, instead nicely replacing it with crunchy, spiraling effects that’ll take you on a few dizzying loops and  powerful buildups that might leave you more than a little floored. The remix imagines the original as a thrilling house track and gives us yet another reason to scuffle up the dancing shoes. Check it out above.

[Mashup] 2 Mello – Chrono Jigga (Jay-Z vs. Chrono Trigger)

Chrono Jigga Cover

What is it about Jay-Z that allows him to blend in so seamlessly with just about everything? I’m not a huge fan of mashups, but I swear all the best mashup projects I’ve ever heard have involved Hov in some way, shape, or form. While pairings with your favorite bands (see: The BeatlesLinkin ParkColdplayOasisAC/DCThe Verve and Radiohead) have all been pleasant surprises in the past, none of those could possibly prepare you for this.

As one of gaming’s true masterpieces, Chrono Trigger was revered for its unique artwork, revolutionary gameplay, breathtaking story, and of course, its legendary soundtrack, which was composed by the talented duo of Yasunori Mitsuda and Nubuo Uematsu. As a self-professed hip-hop head and video game nerd, 2 Mello has collided the two drastically different worlds to craft one of the most bizarre mashups of all time with Chrono Jigga. It takes an entirely different level of creativity to envision a project such as this, and Mello is able to prove this is more than just a gimmick.

Instead of simply slapping a few bars over some catchy music, 2 Mello often re-imagines some of our favorite Jay-Z works, and breathes new life into them, as all great mashups should do. Take for example, “Ignorant Scene.” It’s not just about finding an upbeat tune to fit with Jay’s “Ignorant Shit.” Rather, Mello explores some of the intricacies hidden in Jay’s verses, and pairs it with the unconventional choice of “Wind Scene,” to allow us to see the classic in an entirely new light. The album is littered with great examples like this.

Take a quick peek at the sample we’ve gathered for you below, and make sure to download the entire project over HERE when you’re done.
