Not too much chit-chat this evening. I'm not one for posting crazy bangers, but these were a bit hard to resist.

Drake- Over (Catchdubs vs Proper Villains "DRAKEOVER" remix)
Great combo, as per the usual. I love when these guys collaborate on rap remixes. Didn't know people were still busting out b-more remixes in this day and age, but I am not mad at it at all

The Beatles- Getting Better (Punk Rolla remix)
This actually sounds a lot better than it looks on paper. People have overkilled the 'remix a classic oldies tune' schtick, but this Punk Rolla rework makes girls spontaneously combust on the dancefloor. A+++

DJ Gregory & Sidney Samson- Dama S Salon (featuring Dama S)
"Tribal"(for lack of a better term) sounding house with vocals straight out of a Kuduro song.

Aniki- Work It Like U Paid 4 It
Weird norwegian fidget house. Wonky wobbly bassline with just enough rhythm to pull it off.

Oh look, it's MDMAwesome posting rap music. Who woulda thunk?

DaVinci- What You Finna Do?

I've always had a fondness for the Bay Area. Some of the dopest rappers and some of the most innovative scenes were spawned in this oft-forgotten area of the West Coast. Too $hort, Dre Dog, Mac Dre, San Quinn, Keak da Sneak, etc. Hyphy, jerking, etc. Recently, however, there has not been much innovative content coming out of the west coast, except for a very select few artists (Lil B is the most notable, but it seems that a lot of his fanbase is made up of people who don't normally listen to hip-hop). Some time last week, I ran across DaVinci's name, for the first time in years, and I am convinced that he is a force to be reckoned with. This is gimmick-free, raw-as-fuck, gritty street hip hop. Just enough skillful wordplay and social commentary for the critics, and enough swagger and real talk for the hood. Hope you dig it.

I'll finish off tonight's post with a video that I'm sure most of our readers have already seen. It's a video of Boys Noize playing at a Belgian festival called FUSE, and the crowd goes apeshit when he drops an insane remix of 'Kontact Me'. After absolutely no research on my part (it's in the video description, for fuck's sake), I found out that the coveted remix is in fact from Canadian producer/dj/promoter Rynecologist (who had a matching maple leaf tattoo done on his bicep with Busy P/Pedro Winter. I am a whore for random, useless gossip.). The remix has not been released yet, but he recently gave away a pretty dope remix of Strip Steve's tune Breakin. I dig the jackin groove and the dizzy bassline, but then again, I'm easily impressed.

Strip Steve- Breakin'(Rynecologist remix)

til' next time, you glorious nutcases.
