Beyonce – Best Thing I Never Had (Jr Blender Dancehall Remix) from Jr Blender on Vimeo.
Jr Blender of So Shifty and Supersonic fame has released two of his latest refixes. The first is cumbia/dancehall inspired take on Beyonce’s latest song (Best Thing I Never Had) of lost love. You can see the video for that above, please be warned Beyonce is basically half naked during the whole song. It’s fun and sure to work on the dancefloors. Download here.
Adele – Rolling In The Deep (Jr Blender Reggae Remix) from Jr Blender on Vimeo.
The second is the ska-ish refix of Adele’s Rolling in the Deep. The thing we like about this remix is that it doesn’t take away from the original’s vocal. Perfect for this little hot streak of weather we are having. Download here.
