You can also dl the amazing JR Blender refix of Usher’s Climax here.
If you are not following rapper Chase N Cashe on twitter you are missing out on some gems. Not only is he incredibly honest about what is going on in music but he will often point you towards some great music out there. Yesterday was no exception, he pointed his followers in the direction of Future the Prince, who is Drake’s DJ , soundcloud. On it is this alluring remix of Frank Ocean’s Thinking About You. The remix itslef flirts on the line of big room dance music alongside a subtler more introspective vibe. Personally i prefer when the instrumental calms down to fit the vocal but the big room part doesn’t put me off. It’s a fun mixture of both approaches that leaves you as a listener wanting more.

We have all been there flagging after a long night out, the pounding headache, the fear of natural light and the craving on any food to soak up last night’s hangover.
We at HDD have a phrase for those suffering after a night out at Hipsters Dont Dance (1st saturday of every month) it’s called a #hddhangover. So as a thank you to our amazing crowd we have decided to create a mix series to ease you back into the real world.
The third one is a mix by HDD resident The Large, it’s better than Alkaseltzer.
Here are a few words from her:
I didn’t really know where I was going when I started this mix, I just reached for what felt good, and clearly now I can see that’s Philly soul, J dilla, east coast rap, the most laid back diss tune ever & some chocolatey vocals. This mix is best enjoyed with nice bassy soundsystem, a spliff and someone to spoon.
Brand new Mayer Hawthorne! Detroit singer Mayer Hawthorne sings an ode to his hometown. Between him and Marshall Mathers excellent Chrysler commercial we are seeing a trend of uplifting Detroit videos. This is taken from his 2nd LP How Do You Do.
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.
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.
