It’s no secret that I love old school hip-hop. “On & On” from Bam and Mr. Dero definitely has that throw back feel on it that I love to hear.
A lame attempt to reorganize my records this past weekend quickly devolved into an extended session of listening to forgotten gems hidden in my vinyl stash. One of my favorite De La Soul cuts, “Sh.Fe.MCs” was released on the rare promo-only Clear Lake Audiotorium EP in 1994.
This Altered Tapes remix of Digable Planets ups the BPMs, adds a moombahton-style beat, and just uses key parts of the vocals to and original samples to make for a dance floor shaker.
Busta & Basement Freaks give a nice moombahton / ghetto funk feel to “Jump Around,” ready to set off a dance floor!
New Orleans’ DJ Yamin just released this blend of Triston Palmer’s dancehall classic “Joker Smoker” and Dead Prez’s “Hip Hop.” The result is a smoked-out version of a classic hip-hop tune.
When De La Soul recently gave away, for free, their entire back catalogue as a promotional tool for releasing a new album it got me thinking about samples…
Most people that like hip-hop like Biggie Smalls. AfroQBen comes with a really nice Biggie remake “Hypnotize Me.”
The first time I heard “Only the Strong Survive” by DJ Krush and C.L. Smooth, I was blown away. It just sounded so different from the other hip-hop I was listening to at the time.
Paul McCartney‘s “Wonderful Christmastime” either evokes fond memories around this time of year or feels like a dagger of repetition in your head as it soundtracks your shopping battles in your local mall. Here are two flips of McCartney’s yule tune that give it a fresh feel.
