Download: Stayin’ Alive by the Bee Gees covered by Jhameel

August 17th, 2012 by | Pop |

Jhameel recently posted a cover of his absolute favorite song, the Bee Gee’s Stayin’ Alive. I like the dark, moody atmosphere he put on this one, it digs into a more desperate interpretation of the words ‘Stayin’ Alive’ and modernizes the song from it’s 70’s recession roots and puts into a new 2012 recession context.

Sample Saturday *Mac Miller, Kid QC, Boro, Pmac, Bei Maejor

May 28th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop, Sampled Saturday |

Another edition of Sampled Saturday and today I’m hitting you with five hip-hop songs with various samples which I will list with each song you are familiar how they have given the song a different direction.

First I will give you the song from one of the most popular white rappers out there, Mac Miller. He has released several tracks since Best Day Ever, some of them have been weak but his sample of The Temper Trap‘s “Love Lost” is pretty cool. They didn’t really change up the original much except with Mac jumping on the vocals instead.

What I like about Kid QC is that he uses samples a lot but doesn’t take away what we like from the original while adding something fresh with his rapping. Here QC samples my favorite disco music from the Bee Gees.

Next comes a chill hip-hop songs that samples my favorite crooner, Michael Buble. Boro is an emerging  talent, I’m not sure I’m a fan yet but all I know is I got big respect for him for sampling Buble.

I have heard this Three Dog Night song sampled many times, yet always slightly different in how its used. Here Pmac uses “One” to create a chill hip-hop track with a sick hook using the original.
Pmac – One
Last song is more of an Pop freestyle over one of the best Third Eye Blind songs ever! Although Bei Maejor uses “Semi-Charmed Life” to showcase his vocals, I love the instrumentals so much. I mean, come on, it’s Third Eye Blind, if you don’t like Third Eye Blind, you need to check your ears.
Bei Maejor – Something Else
Hope everybody is having a great 3 day weekend!

Party remixes *The Killers, Joker, Usher, Nicki Minaj, Bee Gees

May 5th, 2011 by | Dance, Remix |

Because it’s Cinco de Mayo aka Drinko de Mayo for the kids who are going to rage tonight, here’s five remixes that you can bump when your partying.

First comes a remix from MADEON on The Killers “Smile Like You Mean It”. I used to be a big fan of The Killers then lead singer Brandon Flowers decided to go solo, and The Killers got kind of crappy. However MADEON does a banging remix to one of the best Killers songs.

Here’s an electro/hip-hop type remix. The original is from Joker and then The Rap Pack decided to remix it with some hip-hop. I love the beat, the rapping only adds to the dope quality, overall real interesting catchy remix.
Joker – Do It (The Rap Pack Remix)
Next is my favorite song of 2009, Usher‘s “Love In This Club” remixed by MSTRKRFT. I love how much more complex the instrumentals become with MSTRKRFT’s additions to the song, really making it a little more special. Must Download!

DJ Kue is at it again with his dance remix to “Moment 4 Life”. I like DJ Kue because he’s really good at making songs you can just hear all over dance clubs… I guess he makes straight bangers!

Teddybears stepped in and decided to remix one of the greatest disco songs from the Bee Gees. I think they did a great job making this new beat to the song and making it more contemporary. However, I will always enjoy the original more, even though this is real catchy.
