“Hype” (Udachi Remix) (MP3)

    Udachi has released stellar remixes this year, including Audio Bullys’ “Dope Fiend” (which DMC magazine says “quite possibly could be the killer remix of 2009,” as cited by Lunar Magazine) and M83’s “We Own the Sky.” This time, he performs surgery on Juiceboxxx and Dre Skull’s “Hype” – the third installment in their disco trilogy, which also includes 2007’s “Center Stage” and  “Sweat.” The original song, which features Juiceboxxx’s manic white-boy-rapper style and Dre Skull’s off-kilter beat stylings, becomes darker and more bass-heavy. Against this backdrop, Juiceboxxx sounds more than just hyper; he sounds deranged. [Fader]
