I’ve been posting waayyy too much Chiddy Bang over the past month. I feel like I’ve dedicated a blog to them… hint, hint (it’s in the works). But they are too damn good to pass up. With their EP, The Preview, just around the corner, Chiddy’s droppin’ some fine remixes to get the word out.
Their remix of New Zealand’s chart topping “Young Blood”, originally by The Naked & Famous, goes so damn well with Chiddy’s style, especially with Alisa Xayalith’s backup vocals. They also did a cover of Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry Be Happy” for Billboard.com‘s mashup monday – take a look at it below.
I also had to include one last track from their EP that’s droppin’ this next Tuesday (support that shit!). “Bad Day” is the cliché hatin’ on the ex song, but with scornfully honest lyrics and a killer beat from Xaphoon, as always.
