While I finish putting the final touches on my latest mini mix (due out the end of this week), I thought I should share a track I heard yesterday. I was seriously thinking about scrapping my mix so I could add this beast — but instead I figured I would throw it into a post and let you have it asap.
Sweden’s Cazzette, who recently dropped an absolute bomb of a track with their remix of Dada Life’s “Rolling Stones T-Shirt,” are back again — this time with a remix of a rap classic. The duo, currently touring with none other than Avicii, take N.W.A’s “Straight Outta Compton” and turn it into a full-on 2012 club anthem. Though they add a heavy coating of EDM gloss, you can still hear the grit and grime from Ice Cube, Ren, Yella, Dre and, of course, Eazy.
This track is the perfect illustration of how and why our genre has come to run the show: every day it seems like you wake up to find that some DJ has taken another song you already loved and found a way to make it completely current. Looking forward to seeing Cazzette live this summer.
Btw, a bonus for Dexter fans: Cazzette’s their remix the show’s opening title music, “The Blood Theme.” I love this track!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Hate that it’s only a preview. More, please.)
