BABY IT’S THE REMIX: Baauer – One Touch

Yours truly has a tendency to crank multiple versions of the same track within the same musical rotation, and this is one such example currently being relished. The OG version, featuring rhymes from Rae Sremmurd (a pair of rappers who spit over Mike Will Made It beats & who’s name spells Ear Drummers backwards) & vocals from Aluna George (UK pop duo) is an unlikely collaboration, yet Baauer makes the genre-bending ménage à trois work. And thanks to Baauer’s tip-top recruitment skillz, more of the world have now been introduced to Swae Lee & Slim Jimmy, the 2 young dudes making up Rae Sremmurd, who spit about popping Senzu beans <3 :D


Choosing to remove the cheek of Rae Sremmurd, Baauer also made a mean “VIP” remix of One Touch (which he actually released first), highlighting the super sweet vocals of Aluna while upping the intensity just a tad, making it all the more gurn friendly. You probably want to pop a Senzu bean to this one :D

VIDEO: ScHoolboy Q – Hell Of A NigHt


Being Oxymoron video lucky number 7, it seems Groovy Q is on a mission to viddy every track off of it. The prospect is exciting, since ScHoolboy Q could personally be my favourite rapper… or does it have to be Kendrick? It’s supposed to be… right? And I was supposed to inform you that Q (or Jay Rock or Ab Soul or anyone on TDE) is a Kendrick affiliate too, wasn’t I? :| Anywho, the video for Hell Of A NigHt should appeal to anyone that has ever been too turnt and lost their marbles on a night. Q kicks things off with a familiar red cup filled with an ambitious narcotic cocktail. He rocks a mean bucket hat & grill, gurning with bulk bad bitches, later seen huffing nitrogen (aka nangs aka hippy crack). He also trips balls in front of a mirror for a while. Standard, given the circumstances. Enjoy :D



Canada’s hip hop offspring seem to have a knack for multi-tasking & Tory Lanez is another Canadian triple threat who sings, raps & produces. Peep the next two tracks – featuring Kirko Bangz, (who sounds like Drake, yeah?) Know What’s Up seductively showcases Tory Lanez’ beautiful voice, which for the ladies, could be likened to a towelette (moist). Then viddy the clip for The Godfather & you will hear an almost indistinguishable Lanez in G mode (not to mention you’ll see a fair bit of bud & bad bitches if you’re into either of those things) 8-)

Without the need to create an alter-ego for his distinct other dimension, he just is who he is – Tory Lanez. Working in the stu alongside producers Play Picasso & Noah Breakfast, as well as appearances from the bae Ryan Hemsworth on Mama Told Me & RL Grime on I-95, the pocket rocket’s freshly dropped mixtape Lost Cause nicely illustrates his skillz, with the tracks Gold, Selfish / York University & The Mission flaunting his singing/rapping dexterity particularly well.

And here’s ya boy T-Lanez sounding superb in the chorus of a mean YG track about his thot ex…

October 2014 Playlist


Nothing kicks off a playlist quite like a twerk jam & Gwola (with production by Coke Empire) is going to be a twerk anthem. Trust me, chuck on some of that Gwola and you’ll have white bitches twerking up & down nightclubs and/or alleyways in no time (see Exhibit A below). Plus you get the added bonus of the ensuing back & forth when abovementioned white girls ask you ‘What was that song!?!’ and you inevitably say ‘Oh, ‘Gwola’, by Honey Cocaine.’ Then they say ‘What? Honey Cocaine, is that ACTUALLY her name?’ You say ‘Yeah’, then they ask you if you’re serious & you say ‘Yeah, I am from Syria!’

‘Oh my god, Honey COCAINE, I can’t even’….. (☉_☉)

Anyway, once you get past the initial Honey Cocaine induced booty workout, you’ll probably just keep on twerking til Track 7, when all the narcotic name-dropping might inspire you to blaze it up for the next 10 tracks. We then encroach on PBR&B territory, where you may become somewhat moist/hard (courtesy of Tory Lanez, The Weeknd, PARTYNEXTDOOR / Tinashe, respectively). Once you’ve gathered your composure at Track 21 (you stoopid) you may get the natural urge in your loins to shake it like a saltshaker again. This shaking of salt should carry you through the chill-trappy dreaminess of Tracks 27-32, until the list gets a little bit more hectic, upon which the addition of tequila and lemon should certainly be considered.

This French dude, 20syl - he makes a mean remix. He’s got the knack for taking a track, maybe just a snippet of the vocals and creating something reminiscent of old-school hip-hop yet completely brand new and funky fresh.

Exhibit A, this almighty concoction of Kendrick Lamar’s closing verse from Game’s The City plus a whole bunch of flutes or whistles or something. Shit’s rad.


This ScHoolboy Q rework is barely distinguishable from the OG track beat-wise but equally as awesome (and another little nod to TDE)


A wee bit of King Krule Easy Easy, given the 20syl treatment;


& here’s his latest gem, a Gregory Porter re-jig…

BABY IT’S THE REMIX: Too Bad I Have To Destroy You Now

Whether they like it or not, my neighbours listen to some pretty good tracks. The Infuze remix of Kid Cudi’s Too Bad I Have To Destroy You Now was one that emanated from my abode a good six months back… for a couple of months, every weekend, both Friday & Saturday nights, multiple times throughout proceedings. A gurn anthem like no other, it must be turnt up and it helps if you are too, although not essential – it’s a mean remix.

*reader turns speakers up and presses play

*reader takes a moment to recover from eargasm

For reference purposes & also because it’s a rad track in itself, hear the OG version here;

September 2014 Playlist

On the back of Sunday’s Listen Out festival, beat nerds on the west coast of Australia have today wrapped up the month with a Suicide Tuesday of epic proportions. With a line-up featuring the man ScHoolboy Q, Shlohmo (who produces heaps of Jeremih’s jams), Flume, Chet Faker & Ta-ku, it’s a shame many of those beat nerds were too turnt up to fully engage with or even recall watching them live, rendering the comedown all the more difficult. Luckily, everyone else watched the show through the screens of their smartphones, so to those of you that were TTU – rest assured :)

It was a particularly chunky month on the hip-hop front, with but a wee sprinkling of trap at the tail end of this month’s list. Personally, this list comes to a climax at 35, because the culmination of Ryan Hemsworth’s beats & the syrupy voice of Dawn Golden is literally climax inducing <3 ♪♪

I have a love affair with hip hop & I play the field, but my Mr Right Now has got to be Young Thug. He has ad-libbed his way into my heart, one hilarious, incomprehensible outburst at a time. It’s a pleasure for my eardrums to wait and see how he litters his verses with delightfully retarded, absolutely nonsensical sound effects <3 I mean – ‘shonuffwatyadowatyasayga‘ – what is that? (check the chorus in About The Money). Cheeech! The dude spits pure noise half the time but it’s fucking exciting. Not many rappers make me smile as much as Thugga Thugga does – check it.

August 2014 Playlist

Like the months of 2014 that preceded it, August was a fun-filled month in which I got too turnt up, accompanied by some killer hip hop & trap tracks, contained within this here playlist. It was a particularly entertaining month in hip hop, as we enjoyed watching Nicki Minaj induce worldwide boners with her Anaconda video. Whilst bootymen around the world rejoiced at the new midnight material, ladies all over began feeling inadequate, with Kylie Minogue even chipping in to remind us all that her “derriere does not compare” to Miss Minaj’s (my Anaconda don’t). 50 Cent also kept us well entertained by trolling the fuck out of Floyd Mayweather on social media, challenging him to read aloud a page of Harry Potter, until generously lowering the bar to Cat In The Hat.

I’m pretty chuffed with this list – you should totes turn it up while you’re turning up. If you like bangers like me & my boy Aziz do, add me on Soundcloud (which is like, a million and one times better than Spotify) <3

VIDEO: Rustie ft. Danny Brown – Attak

I have been eargasming over this song for a few weeks now & have made everyone who has shared a car or a drink with me take a moment to appreciate its sheer awesomeness. And appreciate it they have, so much so that the lyric TELL YO BITCH TO SUCK MY DICK has speedily traveled through their ears and into their brains, inevitably heard via several drunken outbursts later on in the evening. Although this track is already on my July list, here is the video, complete with the man Danny Brown himself, and all sorts of scrolling word art and cash money. Enjoy >_<
