so fresh

good music to end a good ol' crunk weekend

Verve Records have been releasing their fresh Verve Remixed compilations since 2002. The fourth and most recent one was released in 2008. I really hope a fifth one is on its way cause this shit is too good.

Their formula : Take some classic jazz/soul/funk and get it remixed by some of the best producers/DJs of the game (ex: Felix Da Housecat, Diplo, Adam Freeland, RJD2) and you get this :

Dinah Washington - Cry Me A River (Truth and Soul Remix)
Sarah Vaughan - Fever (Adam Freeland Remix)

And the ones you probably already know :
Marlena Shaw - California Soul (Diplo/Mad Decent Remix)
Nina Simone - Sinnerman (Felix Da Housecat's Heavenly House Mix)

Make sure to support the Verve Remixed collection, definitely worth your money.

We Have Band - Divisive

We Have Band's song "Divisive" has been remixed by so many people but hey, this remix here didn't get that much exposure since its a mellow ambient beat. Good track to chill, much more slower then the original featured in the video above, bassline at 4:20.
We Have Band - Divisive (Gohan Mix)

I couldn't let a post go without some good hip hop. The songs here could be called underground since its not everyone's cup of tea but for you hip hop fiends out there I'm pretty sure you'll jump on this shit quickly.
Snowgoons - Iceman (Feat. Cymershall Law)
Black Opz - Battle Cry

This one is with the same sampled instrumental as the Black Opz track but slower vibe (the ending is a bit fucked, but after hours of looking for a better version... fuck it, this shit is not even on itunes)
The Last Emperor - Heaven

And a track combining both Snoowgoons and The Last Emperor
Snowgoons - Man Of The Year (Feat. The Last Emperor)

Instrumental hip hop for sunny sundays :
DJ Shadow & Kid Koala - Third World Lover
Emancipator - First Snow

sooo muccch music, hurrtss my eyess


  1. straight up dope right here. i'll be playing that verve remixed 4 for my family supper tonight! also saw they did something called verve unmixed... is it any good? I've been diggin' Snowgoons for some time now, raw flow. Kinda sounds like Jedi Mind / AOTP.
