“Die Like A Rockstar” (Nick Catchdubs Remix)

    The folks at the Fader have teamed up with HTC for a project that pairs up tracks from 10 rappers with the remix work of 10 producers. And it’s off to a great start already with Brooklyn-based Nick Catchdubs’ bass-heavy remix of Danny Brown’s “Die Like a Rockstar.” The track, which appears on the Detroit spitter’s XXX, was already pretty massive. But Catchdubs, who’s actually Brown’s label boss at Fool’s Fold, has put a booming emphasis on the grimier parts of the track, particularly the swirling, Terminator 2-esque synthesizers. Hell, it almost feels like you’re transported into an action movie just listening to this shit. Stream/download the remix below. It’s ill. [FADER]
