I’ve always been enamored by funky/downtempo remixes of classic hip hop/R&B tracks, and this latest remix by The Golden Pony caught my ear recently. It adds a slightly laid back, seductive, but still fun vibe to Outkast’s “Ms Jackson,” and it contains all the necessary ingredients for a chill summer electro/hip hop track.
I can never resist remixes of hip hop classics, and this one by Flaxo caught my ear today. He adds some clever, creative instrumentation to Outkast’s vocals to give it a fresh, summery vibe. Although there are a couple of moments moments when the beats don’t quite match up so perfectly with Andre 3000’s signature style of rapping, the track is filled with ear candy that’s equal parts funky electronica and bursts of progressive house.
Overall, it’s a fun, refreshing take on the original that I’m really enjoying.
