Since I started this blog, the sole purpose was to share music that I loved with my friends and anyone who cares. This post is for the same purpose but is yet way more personal and special to me. I’m extremely excited to present for the first time, some exclusive content in the form of this great remix produced by two close friends of mine.
The track is a genre-blending and fresh retake on Kendrick Lamar’s Dr. Dre assisted single - The Recipe. It’s isn’t just a regular remix but is a reworked track from the ground up, building on a great alt-j sample, jellosea & audioMimic then spin out a variety of styles throughout the track.
From a laid back initial vibe of the first verse by Dr. Dre, the track smoothly transitions to the fiery verses of Kendrick Lamar which are perfectly accentuated with a deep bass backed up a dubstep beat to the hip-shaking dancehall rhythms of the bridge, this track just keeps you guessing while keeping you hooked.
Speaking of hooks, Coldplay are called upon to add their popular “Paradise” chorus which completes the track in an unexpected but fitting manner.
Music promotion is a hard business but it’s great to see the producers getting some love from the blogosphere. For all the bloggers who shared this track, we’d like to thank you for the love. Big Ups, The Burning Ear, The Journey, Good Music All Day, Sunset in the Rearview & Lights & Music for supporting this track!
Here’s a HypeM link for all the hipsters :)
