I’ve posted up a couple old remixes on Soundcloud for you to listen to, download, and love.
First up is my remix of “All About the Music” by DJ Z-Trip featuring the legendary Whipper Whip that I did not too long after Z-Trip’s album dropped. It didn’t start out being a remix, but once I put the beat together, I started running vocals on top of it, and Whipper Whip’s worked pretty well, so I laid them down, added some scratches, and finished it off. 8 years later, I found it lurking on my hard drive and decided to post it up. Enjoy!
And then there’s this remix of OutKast’s “Skew It on the Bar-B.” This one didn’t start off as a remix, either, but as a tribute to James Brown. I woke up on December 25, 2006, to the tragic news that James Brown had died. The only thing I could think to do was pay tribute to him the same way so many of my favorite hip-hop songs had: By chopping up some classic JB joints on the SP-1200. As I programmed this beat, I started rapping “old-school players to new-school fools” to it, so I grabbed the OutKast 12-inch, started running the acapella over the beat, and thought it fit really well, so this beat turned into a remix.
