I was stoked discovering some great '90s songs had been remixed into Trap/Future Bass/etc. styles. It's always great hearing something old in a new way. To keep things simple, I renamed some tracks to fit our "remixes" theme. If you are unable to find a song in my mix, contact us and we'll get you the proper track title. If I had to pick a favorite from this list, I'd go with the "Missy Elliot" remix. This song is so gangsta that I discovered I had a "grill" after listening the first time! "Damn, son. Where'd ya find this?" Christmas was last week, but if you've still got the spirit, Slow Magic did an awesome job on Justin Bieber's "Fa La La." The Prodigy's "Minefields" was off one of the '90s' biggest electronic records. Who more perfect to remix it than one of this year's kings of Trap, Baauer?

How do you take something great and give it new life? I picked well-known, already kick-A tracks, but with these remixes, it's like listening to something entirely new. Big surprise – 80% if this is R&B. But Taylor Swift should make up for it. Alright here we go: A kinky Missy remix by LA's Falcons, then Nicki Minaj gets a little chopped and screwed by Wedidit compatriot Groundislava, and Cralias is no stranger to the remix. I love love love the garage remix of Lauryn Hill that comes up next. Might be my fave on the mix. This Cassie bootleg pwns every Cassie remix I've ever heard, promise. Then, a glitchy, bloopy Lana Del Rey, house-garage vibes x Destiny's Child, subtle, Hemsworth-y, enhancements to an already great Frank Ocean track, and Rihanna goes seapunk with Jerome LOL.
A few years ago we started trading mixtapes as a fun way to share new (or old) songs that we thought our brother-from-another-mother (or sister-from-another-mister) might enjoy. It began with a simple set of parameters — 10 tracks and a title — and quickly* became this little site where we can share with the world the mixtapes we've shared with each other.
* This site was completed in under 24 hours on a chilly, winter evening warmed by the glows of our computers.
