As much as I enjoy poolboi blu‘s original music (and am hoping to wrap up a small project he and I have in the works), I’m totally on board for the remixes that he does. His latest, Namco, is a flip of a track by Gunna, Travis Scott and Metro Boomin’, and as per usual, poolboi manages to make it unique without sacrificing any of the original track’s quality. This one is a name your price download, so there’s no reason to not put it in your library, and if you can, dropping a buck or two isn’t a bad idea.

After a successful start to the year, The Vapor Caves decided to have a little fun by making the stems for their single The Chase public and available for producers to remix. Several notable talents stepped up to the challenge, and The Vapor Caves have set about making a playlist to collect them all like Pokemon. So far, Butcher Bear, DJ LADDDA, DJ Boozwa and the Nodes of Thought, Madd Wikkid, Multi-Tracker and even myself have gotten in on the act, and I wouldn’t be surprised if there were more on the list by the time this post goes public. I’ll definitely be following this playlist, and I even have a few producers in mind that I think could make dope remixes, so you should probably stay tuned as well.

A month or so ago, Virgil Wolfe debuted a new single (a collaboration with producer Big Lo) titled Lovely To Look At, and it made an impression on me. It made such an impression, in fact, that I concluded my blog entry on the song by suggesting a remix with myself on it wouldn’t be a bad idea. Cut to the present time, and what seemed at first like a wild request has become a stark reality. Lovely To Look At still jams, but now there’s an extra bit of lyrical craftsmanship from yours truly tagged on at the end, and the possibility of more collaborations in the future. Check out the new version of the track, share it around, and if you really dig it, give it a like and a comment!

Virgil Wolfe recently dropped a new track, a collaboration with producer Big Lo titled Lovely To Look At. The beat is wonderfully off-kilter and lo-fi, with an eerie vocal sample and purposeful recording/aging distortion integrated into the track. It’s a suitable soundscape for some of Wolfe‘s more cryptic lyrical fare. His verse and delivery put me in the mindset of a Labyrinth-like situation, where I must solve the riddles Virgil Wolfe presents me before I am able to progress further. My only real frustration with the song is that it is simply a single verse… an extended break and a second verse would have made this one pure gold. Maybe a remix featuring Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice on a guest verse could solve that? Regardless, here’s to Virgil Wolfe for continuing to put out both quantity and quality when it comes to tunage.

Notes Floats and Fluid One Studios are back at it on the visual tip, and this time, it’s like an indie moving painting. These guys are definitely letting their respective imaginations run wild, and the result are very memorable videos for very good songs. “There Ya Go” originally was on The Transfer, but the remix is available here. Enjoy!
