Since some of you weren’t even alive at 1984
I’ll forgive you for not feeling amazingly nostalgic
when hearing the famous chorus from Alphaville’s
Forever Young, whenever you hear Jay Z ft Mr Hudson’s
hip hop version of the song titled Young Forever.
Eyes dubstep remix of Young Forever intelligently maintains
enough of the original vibe while adding a vibe of his own.
Though it sort of loses direction a little bit in the middle
(seems like Eyes was just starting to make remixes at that point)
it’s still a great listen.
I Got 5 on It by the Hip-Hop Duo Luniz,
is one of the most memorable rap tracks
of the 90’s and is almost always included in
every Top Rap Classics Compilation.
It is no surprise then that several remixers have attempted
to take on the song, however, only Pete Miles in my opinion,
was able to really get the job done, creatively combining
trance elements with Hip-Hop pays off when
you got the skills to make them work.
When I first heard Kid Cudi’s Pursuit of Happiness,
which features vocals from the amazing neo-psychedelic
group MGMT, the thought “this would make a sick dubstep remix”
entered my mind, and I was extremely happy to find out
HYQXYZ had already released one.
While I may catch some heat for this, I have to say
that I find HYQXYZ’s remix to be better than the original,
which I also loved, but found annoying over time.
Listen and decide for yourself, what do you think?
Gifted by N.A.S.A was already an epic alternative
hip hop track, but Masuka’s dubstep remix rendition,
really takes it to the next level in my opinion.
Check out DJ Borgore’s remix of Clint Eastwood, the amazing
debut single by Gorillaz. An innovative combination of
rock, electronic, and hip hop.
All that was missing was a dose of dubstep.
A nasty hip hop dubstep remix by DJ Bassel off of
Nicki Minaj’s Did it On ‘Em, her fourth single off
her debut album “Pink Friday”.
While far from my personal taste, Doorly was
able to work his magic and create a pretty decent
hip hop dubstep remix of Dizzee Rascal’s first single
from his fourth album “Tongue n’ Cheek”.
Somewhat of a light dubstep remix by “Rival” of this
huge hit from Young Money (Lil Wayne’s record label)
featuring Gudda Gudda, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Tyga, Jae Millz,
Lloyd, and of course, Lil Wayne.
Another rap dubstep remix by Roksonix of Drake’s lead single “Over”
off of his debut album “Thank Me Later”.
Wick-it the instigator is one my favorite Producers when it
comes to rap and hip hop dubstep remixes, and his remix of
Beastie Boy’s “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” is a definite listen.
