mp3: AlunaGeorge- You Know You Like It (Bondax Remix)

AlunaGeorge’s ‘You Know You Like It’ is last year’s surprise hit of this year, so it is fitting that it gets a proper remix from fellow bass music experimentalists Bondax.  The original is already a catchy pop-driven track and this Bondax remix takes that further by really looping, warping, sampling and pulling off all other sorts of great sounds and vibes.  While the remix retains the sensual vibe of the original (it would be impossible and completely pointless for anyone to get rid of the sexiness of this track anyway), it is refocused on a dance floor atmosphere with a faster pace driving the track forward.  Stream and download the mp3 below (via The Fader)…

Video: Rejjie Snow- Meddling Loops (ft. Crave & Jesse James)

One of flaws of the blogosphere is that it can cause young artists to get swept up in a huge wave off hype and then receive immense amounts of backlash when they don’t live up to the expectations.  That same possibility was starting to become possible for Irish rapper Rejjie Snow who has built a huge following off only a few tracks, videos and demos. ‘Meddling Loops’ is the first official release we’ve heard from Rejjie since he was making music as Lecs Luther and it destroys any possibility that he doesn’t deserve the hype he’s built.  With UK rappers Jesse James and Crave, Rejjie unleashes a track and video that is simply filled with audio dopeness.  The three rappers all choose to go with laid back and word dense flows and each of them come with distinct and rich personalities (the same reason why their track ‘Trashy’ is so great).  It’s a good thing the video is here to illustrate some of the metaphors and imagery because between the three of them there is a lot to listen for here.
