HLMNSRA – CALL ME ON MY CELL

Those not living under rocks will be more than familiar with the behemoth of a track that is Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’.  Italian beatmaker HMLNSRA couples the track’s sped-up vocals with a wonky, abstract Hip Hop beat on his remix, ‘Call Me On My Cell’.  It’s certainly a fresher take on the Drake smash than Bieber’s, stream below…

SKEPTA – NASTY [KLIMEKS REMIX]

Skepta’s ‘Nasty‘, along with ‘Shutdown‘ and ‘That’s Not Me‘, is among a slew of new tracks that is sparking a resurgence of interest in the Grime Legend.  UK producer Klimeks has now put his own spin on the track with a tight remix that represents quite the departure from his usual expansive sound.  Stream below via…

GOLDLINK – DANCE ON ME [GEOTHEORY REMIX]

Last month XXL freshman Goldlink released ‘Dance On Me‘, a mellow yet dancefloor-friendly cut produced by Milo Mills.  Now the remix reigns have been passed to Geotheory, who switches up the pumping 4/4 of the original for a slower Hip Hop beat.  Leaving the Washington DC MC intact, Geotheory maintains the track’s feel-good intensity, while…
