Twisted Tuesday: The White Panda ft. White Town x Dorrough, DOSVEC ft. Gotye x Biggie + Star Slinger ft H-Town
I got alliteration for days, ya got wack for weeks! Don’t fuck with The Funk….
This original White Town song is kinda creepy, but in a good way. Not in a gay way (there are definitely some gender role/sexual orientation issues that need to be cleared up in that one) I just like the quiet creepy dude’s voice over the quaint instrumental. But if you’re feeling a little unsure and insecure (like Andy from The Office) when listening to the lyrics but really like the beat, then The White Panda solves all your problems with a little help from their favorite mashable rap vocals.
I know, I know. If you listen to the radio on a regular basis you probably want to blow your brains out whenever that Gotye joint plays every 30 minutes. And if you’re constantly exploring the blogosphere you’re probably in the same boat based on the amount of revisions shat out of remix artists’ asses on a weekly basis. But in my opinion, DOSVEC does just enough to the beat in this one to keep it super fresh without abandoning what made the original so hypnotizing. And who can say no to Diddy when he says he wants a remix again?
Search for Star Slinger on The Funk and you’ll see we’ve been up on a couple solid joints of his. I found this one on Pigeon and Planes (great blog btw) top 10 of said remix master. On another note, remember how cool R&B groups of 3-5 dudes were in the 90’s and early 2000’s? Can’t we go back to that? Who am I kidding. Dudes’ egos are through the roof these days. And it’s a COT damn shame.
Another great mash up from the White Panda. Mash ups seem pretty simple, you just strip the vocals from one song, and add em to the beat of another. But a lot of mash ups sound like shit. It takes some skill, and a lot of creativity to make it work well. The White Panda has pretty much perfected the craft. The Hood Internet is solid too, but these guys are my favorite by far. The first mix I heard from them was Ice Chrome Paint Job, followed em ever since. As part of the Sunday Bundle, I’ve included some of my favorite tracks over the past year and a half for you to get acquainted with.
