Chet Faker – Talk is Cheap (Ta-ku Remix)

The ‘genre killer’ has done it yet again

it seems that everything Ta-Ku gets his hands on instantly becomes gold, and it’s no different with his remix of Faker’s Talk is Cheap. Completely detaching any real lyrics and instead infusing scant lyrics layered over a building percussion. What starts as a somber tone builds up into an eruption of emotion around the half way point and continues through the song. Ta-ku really knows how to convey emotions through his building beats and sounds, and this is why so many people love his music. Take a listen for yourself and you’ll know what I mean…

BadBadNotGood (BBNG) is a instrumental jazz trio from Toronto known for their collaborations with Odd Future, particularly Tyler the Creator. They recently released their debut album on May 6th, download it via Itunes, and dropped this stellar remix of Freddie Gibbs and Madlib’s Shame as well which fits perfectly with both of their flows.

Tsunami (Remix)- Tyga

https://soundcloud.com/hotnewhiphop-com/tyga-tsunami-remix-1

I have never been a huge fan of Tyga and his style of rapping, but I have always respected his choice of beats. He turned Cedric Gervais’s “Molly” into a hip-hop heater that was much better than the original in my opinion. In this track, he raps over DVBBS and Borgeous’s “Tsunami”, one of the biggest festival tunes of the year and does not disappoint. Tsunami has been considered “repetitive” but the lyrics and the hook add so much more to the song. I see a trend of rappers getting into these festival songs. I wouldn’t be surprised to see plenty more in the future. I sure as hell would be happy about it. Props to Tyga for changing the game up. Download the Tsunami remix!

Vampire Weekend (Feat. Danny Brown, Heems, and Despot)- Step (Wintertime Remix)

This remix of Vampire Weekend’s “Step” features three very different rappers spitting verses over an original Vampire Weekend beat. The instrumental morphing electronic elements, with piano and string instruments makes for an excellent backdrop. All three emcees rap about love, the “one that got away”, and growing up and take a much more different approach to lost love than Vampire Weekend does in the original “Step”.

With Vampire Weekend’s “Modern Vampires of the City” being one of the best albums of 2013, and already a new remix released via their twitter account in 2014. It seems safe to say Vampire Weekend has high hopes for 2014. This remix is incredible.

Ed Sheeran – I See Fire (Kygo Remix)
