We’ve almost made it to the 4th of July folks, which means I’ll have two new mixtapes ready to soundtrack your holiday festivities (get last year’s here). This week’s Remix Friday even gives you a sneak preview of a few tracks you’ll hear on the mixtapes. Glen Check’s “Pacific” was already an ideal summer jam, but Justin Faust added just enough flair to make it a summer addiction. Kove’s dancefloor anthem “Way We Are” got reworked by APEXAPE and Solidisco continued his reign of remix hits with his take on Icona Pop’s “Just Another Night.
Favorite of the week comes from the Windy’s City’s best, The Hood Internet. The duo artfully paired one of my all time favorite Missy Elliot tracks with Blood Culture on “Sock It 2 Summer”. Perfect timing, gentlemen. The throwback of the week really needs no introduction as it is quite possibly one of the best remixes of all time: Ratatat’s take on Biggie’s “Party & Bullshit”. No matter how many producers try to reinterpret The Notorious B.I.G.’s classic anthem, Ratatat still made the best version.
