Welcome to our latest Weekly Set. As we mentioned in previous posts, the past seven days saw the release of a range of superb remixes of current radio hits. However, the top spot was gained by Canadian duo Chromeo, who made an uncanny return to the musical stage with their synth-heavy 80s-influenced track “Don’t Turn Your Lights On”. Also back in heavy demand is the incomparable Roots-crew with their new album How I Got Over, which was released last week. “Right One” featuring Joanna Newsom and STS is just a small bite of it. German beatsmith Boys Noize reworked N*E*R*D’s new single “Hit N’ Fun”, thus providing the banging track with an additional edge. Our readers also took notice how Electronic duo New Orbital came back after six years with their new song “Don’t Stop Me”. Eminem and Dr. Dre reunited for “Ridaz” which appears on Recovery. The repsonse was not as heated as the Doc’s collaboration with Jay-Z the week before.
Three more remixes raised our eyebrows – MSTRKRFT’s rendition of Katy Perry’s ode to her home state “California Girls”, Nas blessing Nneka’s excellent track “Heartfelt” as well as Asher Roth adding his vocals to – yet again – “Hot N’ Fun”. In addition, Drake prove that he “still got it” whereas Curren$y prove that his upcoming Pilot Talk will boast high profile guests. Enjoy in the audible recap.
