On his bootleg of Thudercat’s “For Love I Come”, Tree puts the original soulful track through a kaleidoscopic lens of reverb, bass and psychedelics. Although the first listen probably won’t cue you in, Tree constructed his bootleg the old fashioned way sampling the original track off vinyl and using analog only additions. The result is a sunburst sound of warmth and pretty distortion. Never stop doing weird things, Tree.
Considering the fact that my mind is pretty blank right now as far as writing about this song is concerned this probably should be a beatie… but I’m just gonna post it instead because it’s really cool. Don’t worry about who Weep is, he’s a DL homie who makes a lot of dope music. ”LOL U ALL THE TIME” is post-bootleg. So listen to it and get on that wave.
Whether you’re ready for it or not, Sad Boiz are taking over. Yung Lean, their fearless but tearfull leader, is softly and emotionally killing it on the blogosphere and soon enough the oceans will be filled with the tears of emotional shawties everywhere. Tapping into his own emotions, OSØ just put out this leaned-out remix of “Hurt”. It’s very real.
Although Pusha T’s rapping on Clipse’s essential Hell Hath No Fury is, in my opinion, some of the best ever, he hasn’t be the most consistent artist in the past few years. When “Numbers on the Board” dropped earlier this year I was amazed by Pusha’s ability to channel his Hell Hath No Fury intensity of rapping over an amazingly odd ball beat from Kanye. Hanz, continuing his streak of giving great rap singles great remixes, has taken the original track and chopped it up and reworked it into an appropriately disorienting listen. Instead of just working up a new beat for the track, Hanz’s mix turns the track into a barrage of disjointed phrases and lines.
We’ve been posting the genius remixes from Oakland native OSØ for a while now and he’s finally decided to put them all in a convenient package with his Lean Mixes tape. The tape includes some of our favorites (“Goldie”, “Radio Song”, “Perfect Skies”, “All Gold Everything” etc.) and throws in plenty of new remixes we haven’t heard before. The newer highlights include more Main Attrakionz and Danny Brown flips as well as a remix of Travis Porter’s “Do A Trick” which has also received remix treatment from some of our other blog favorites NVTHLSS and suicideyear. Across the EP, OSØ comes through on the promise of lean mixes with tracks that are much more vibed-up and spaced out than the originals without ever sticking to simply chopped and screwed edits. He even throws in a “Gangham Style” remix at the end of the tape. Check out the entire tape after the jump.
“A Milli” came out in 2008, well before I was ready to embrace Lil Wayne. During 2008 I became enamored with bands like Vampire Weekend and Fleet Foxes and the mainstream status of “A Milli” placed it miles away from anything I considered to be “good”. Luckily, future-trap wunderkind Suicideyear has allowed me to listen to “A Milli” with fresh ears. It’s cool.
I don’t know what’s different about the air or water over there in Paris but all the producers are on the same wave. Following in the footsteps of NVTHLSS, Dream Koala and Myth Syzer, 1963 is a Parisian producer who makes hip-hop minded beats with heavy doses of atmosphere. 1963 shows his sound off in spades with his remix of Justice’s much beloved “We Are Your Friends”. While the original is still the definitive dance floor anthem, 1963 spaces things out with some sounds and vibes that are just damn pretty. I have a weakness to pretty things. I’m just a man blogger.
