E Da Boss just hipped me to a couple remixes done by fellow bay area and Daly City Records enlisted, Mochipet. Hitting the cusp of glicthed breaks and electro, Mochipet puts his own twist on the club hip hop track making it even more club than before. Also in the package is a nice slowed tempo breaks jam.

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Thriller, Thelonious Onederful Esquire aka THEONE just hit me with his new concept remix soundtrack album ‘Thrill Kill.’ Using elements and samples from Thriller, he devised a new soundtrack to go along with his favorite movie ‘The Killer’ directed by John Woo. Using samples from the legendary Thriller album, THEONE gives us a new interpretation of the songs designed specially for scenes in ‘The Killer.’ Make sure to peep each song all the way through as the flips the beats in multiple styles and up to three times on some tracks. This is strictly for fun and promotional use only. Don’t be afraid, click the banner to download.
Happy New Year! I was digging through my itunes library yesterday and came across this little mixtape gem from Raashan Ahmad’s ‘Bootlegs, B-Sides and Rarities’. Live and Direct from Raa & Gift of Gab, they give an ode to the old school with a throwback freestyle session. Wordplay is the theme over the ‘Human Beat Box’ and the original ‘Stick Em’ beat laced with some nice Fat Boy Drums. Don’t be shy, click the banner to download.
