There is a good chance this will be my favorite cover of the year. Remember the Ghost Town DJ’s? So So Def Bass All Stars? Yea, I didn’t think so. Well, the video below was on MTV Jams (remember Ananda Lewis?) constantly circa 1996.
Detroit-based artists Desktop made a cover/remix that blows away the original. Mixing Auto-Tuned vocals and spacey electro beats plus a sample of our favorite Gremlin’s hit, “A Milli”, turns out to be a dance-worthy gem.
Desktop – My Boo (Ghost Town DJ’s cover)
Desktop (Keith Thompson of Electric Six and Zach Curd of The Pop Project) also has a free self-titled EP over at their website (pre-order in vinyl here) that I’ll get too later. It happens to be amazing as well.
