2016 Wrap-Up: Top Remixes of 2016 #10-1

No surprise, but Kaytranada’s huge year with originals album 99.9%, also included quality remixes. The Montreal producer’s excellent takes on Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better” and Solange’s “Cranes In The Sky” were in heavy rotation, but Kay’s reinterpretation of a Janet Jackson track was once again my most played of the year. The Kaytranada flip of […]

New Mixtape: Into Narkness ft KiD CuDi, Hit-Boy, Skewby, Drake & more

Nostalgia, a word my wife can’t stand for some reason and the way I’ll always feel about ‘90’s and early ‘00’s hip-hop. If bling, soul samples, No Limit and bass from an 808 make you yearn for days of old, you will enjoy this mixtape. Newcomer Mayalino must have called in a major favor because […]

REMIX FRIDAY: Kaytranada, Kendrick Lamar, Panic City, MNDR, Todd Edwards & more

(Photo via Jonathan Daniel/Getty) No time for a track by track description today, but I will say that “If” is probably my top Janet Jackson joint of all time. The Kaytranada takes the track to an entirely different place and I love it. Also, I don’t normally include hip-hop related remixes, but Kendrick and Rihanna […]

The Melker Project – Skeetwood Mac EP ft Fleetwood Mac, Ciara, Jay-Z, Rihanna & more

With “The (2) Chainz” already burning up Hype Machine, it’s hard not to believe the rest of The Melker Project‘s latest EP making an impact. The rest of the EP eloquently pairs Stevie Nicks and the gang with underrated hip-hop gems (Ciara’s “Ride”) and classics (Jay-Z’s “Feelin’ It”, Trickdaddy “Sugar”). “Feelin’ The Landslide” is by […]
