San Diego-based producer Carlos Serrano has shot to prominence this year for some excellent tracks that splice together musicians as diverse as Phoenix and Kavisnki as well as Adele and Daft Punk. The producer’s latest mash-up takes the Glitch Mob’s “Fortune Days” and overlays it with Jay-Z’s lyrics from “99 Problems,” and it works really well. The Glitch Mob’s hard-edged sound fits perfectly with Jay-Z’s me-against-the-world rhyming and forms a smart update of Rick Rubin’s original production style.
