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.
The Golden Pony has completely changed the vibe of this Chet Faker and Flume collaboration from their 2013 EP “Lockjaw,” making it way more fun to listen to. The original song has a very slow, washed out, almost languid beat, whereas this remix significantly amps up the tempo and adds brighter beats and hints of saxophone. A shining example of a remix that’s especially well done and impactful.
