Big Gigantic · Rise and Shine

Throw a little saxy into this electro-fuck

I may be diggin the electronic scene a bit too much lately, but I still got so much love for the classics. In fact, if you aren’t throwin in a little brass or any of the other families into your electro-set, you’re seriously lacking.

Big Gigantic’s “Rise and Shine” is a perfect example of this blend of electronic, brass and percussions. With one sultry leading sax by Dominic Lalli and a rockout drum performance by Jeremy Salke, this shit barely needs the electronic touch – but for the sake of today’s youth infatuated electro-goers, the mix of it all sets any raver off right.

The “Rise and Shine” single is off their upcoming album, Nocturnal, which is set to release early, early 2012. Cannot wait for that saxy beast.

Camo & Krooked · James Bond Theme (Rework)

You know the Bond theme was gonna get 'stepped on eventually.

Camo + Krooked created the official remix of the James Bond theme for Activision’s GoldenEye 007 : Reloaded. I don’t know how this game is gonna stack up to the N64 original, but Camo & Krooked’s dubstep rework of the original theme adds just enough electro-bass goodness to keep it up with the times, yet doesn’t go too far with it (thankfully).

Childish Gambino · Sway In The Morning Freestyle

Throwin in some freestylin' to all sorts of beats

To promote his upcoming album, Camp, Gambino did a freestyle over at Sway in the Morning against DJ Wonder’s “5 Fingers of Death.” From dubstep to reggae, Gambino shows off his freestyle talents in just about every fashion. He may not have had the most immaculate freestylings, but his cunning style is ever present. Now this is some real shit.

Amy Winehouse feat. Nas · Like Smoke

A Lioness filled with Hidden Treasures

“Like Smoke” was produced back in ’08 for Winehouse’s Back to Black album, but never made the cut. Now it’s being released with a bunch of her other Hidden Treasures, which is set to release December 5.

The track, as the whole album, will be a bittersweet dedication just in time for the cozy-time season. Can’t say this shows off Winehouse’s moving vocals to the utmost, but still brings the soul, as always. On the other hand, Nas speaks it well, blending in with Winehouse like only two with such talents could.

RIP Wino.

Benny Benassi · Cinema (Stephan Jacobs Remix)

Getting closer to finding a perfect remix for Gary Go's gorgeous vocals.

Skrillex’s remix of “Cinema” took Gary Go’s vocals and stepped ’em to an even higher level with those synths. But where Skrillex went with the stereotypical, over-chaotic dubstep drops, Stephan Jacobs went a different route.

Jacobs’ remix goes for a breakbeat // glitch vibe that feels like a clusterfuck at first – happens a lot in glitch – but after a few listens you warm up to the seemingly chaotic mess and start to vibe hard to it in your head. I still haven’t found a remix to “Cinema” that’s got the full package, but we’re definitely stepping it up on each remix.

De La Soul · Say No Go (Bobby C Sound TV Remix)

Bringing out those funky-ass viibes like never before.

Damn it’s good to hear some De La Soul revived. And damn does Bobby C revive it with a classic feel, bringing out those funky instrumentals more than ever before. Which actually brings up my biggest qualm with hip-hop, like De La, from back in the day – the instrumentals never seemed to be fully expressed. Was it because that was the standard or just a lack of quality production Either way, Bobby C fully expresses it here.
