artworks-000045002556-s5n2uc-t500x500Surprising, but not that surprising. Big Gigantic‘s recent work has leaned mostly on the dubstep end of EDM, but I still blast some of their remixes of hip-hop gems from time to time. As a reward for surpassing the 100k fan mark on Facebook, the CO duo offered up a reworking of Jay-Z’s classic party cut “Can I Get A…”. The reinterpretation is extra funky with blasts of bass and synth, but Dominic Lalli’s sax steals the show. Stream and free download below:

    I wonder if someone out there has done a musical analysis of what makes Biggie’s songs the best to remix and mash up. Just his natural lyrical flow? The ‘classic’ status of his songs? It seems no one else even comes close.

  • I’d have to agree with you on his flow being desirable for remixers. He doesn’t attempt some of the technical approaches that emcees like Jay-Z, Eminem, etc. rhyme with making it easier to dump on most beats.

    I can’t believe I had never heard of these guys before, great find on the remixes, will definitely be playing these tracks for a while!

  • Great post! I’m a huge fan of Big Gigantic but have never heard these remixes. They are so sick, i love how their style blends with Biggie and Aloe Blacc.
