We’re back with the latest edition of Remixes/Remakes (July’s release here) and these four songs couldn’t be more fitting. FIRST, and the track I’m most excited to unleash on our listeners, is a track called “(Under The) Brooklyn Bridge” from a new hip-hop group called Riot !n Paris. They’ve remade the Red Hot Chili Peppers hit “Under The Bridge” to splendid effect – you’ll especially like it if you rep BKNY as much as they do. NEXT, we have NBS favorite That Kid CG with another cut off his mixtape titled “Fork In The Road,” featuring the Philly-born emcee spitting over RJD2’s “Ghostwriter.” Personally, I had grown somewhat sick of RJD2’s instrumental masterpiece, but the smoothness of the vocals have placed the tune back into my summer playlists. AFTER YOU LISTEN TO THAT, we have one of first female hip-hop artists on the site thus far, K. Flay, with a recent release titled “2 Weak.” The 24-year old Stanford-grad ambitiously samples Grizzly Bear’s indie hit “Two Weeks,” yet pulls it off with a combination of creative verses and silky vocals that leaves us anxious to hear more. FINALLY, we have a track that’s been making waves in the blogosphere, from savvy Pittsburgh MC Mac Miller titled “Don’t Mind If I Do,” which samples recent pop-phenom Owl City’s hit “Fireflies.” All together, this is a pretty diverse grouping of songs but all either contain samples or are remakes of songs we like – be sure to check them all out.
