Another day, another Teklife remix.

Shortly before Rashad’s passing, he remixed this jam from the Sleigh Bells off their Bitter Rivals release, called “Young Legends.”

As always, enjoy my BSIIIIIDERS, and turn that shit up!

Completed four days prior to DJ Rashad’s passing, DJ Rashad, DJ Spinn and Taso - legendary Chicago footwork pioneers from Teklife - rework “Do My Thang” by Snoop Dogg & Dam-Funk, from their 7 Days of Funk album. The trio take Snoop and Dam’s original modern funk track and flip it, cranking up the BPM and transform the track into a spacious, bass-heavy-house-hitter.

Prince Paul,
What I Need / Make Room 12"

Prince Paul.  The name needs no introduction.  Dead or alive, he is one of the producers that I model myself after.  The way he was able to layer and mix breakbeats into an amalgamated soundscape that was dense and still had a wonderful feel to them puts him in my top five, along with Madlib, Pete Rock, Primo, and the Bomb Squad.  The last solo output that he had was along the lines of his last effort, where it was an audio movie (see A Prince Among Thieves) about his anger and frustration with the industry machine at large.  Many critics and fans alike were confused by the production which had its mainstream tendencies, and the stacked guest list of collaborators, which was an odd combo in theory, but I always felt Prince Paul made the point he wanted to make with that album.  If you were like me though, and got the promo 12”, you noticed the Chinchilla Mix of “What I Need,” a remix of the original which had Kardinal Offishall & Sly Boogie trading verses over their wants and needs, however, the Chinchilla Mix makes it sound a little more better, right?  So without further adieu my BSIIIIIIIIIIDERS, TURN THAT SHIT UP!

Fool’s Gold captain and DJ icon A-Trak kicked off 2014 by dropping some of the most exciting and unexpected collaborations in music, from the highly anticipated Federal Reserve project with Cam’ron to Duck Sauce’s acclaimed album Quack. Yet his boldest team up to date may just be Low Pros, a bass extravaganza helmed by Trizzy and Lex Luger, the elusive producer behind genre-defining tracks for Waka Flocka, Juicy J, Rick Ross & more.

The two linked in Atlanta for non-stop recording sessions with fellow producers Metro Boomin (Future, YG), Brillz and High Klassified (Fool’s Gold), enlisting everyone from new-school superstar Young Thug to dirty south legend Juvenile to add their magic to the mix. The resulting EP takes the trap sound Lex literally invented into outer space, raising the bar for hip-hop and electronic productions alike.
