This is some really dope stuff right here. Jeremy Franchina and Jeremy Smith present us with a full album of mashups featuring tracks from Notorious B.I.G. and Flume….ah, the answer is yes, i’ll have that please. It is simply the best collection of unique mashups I have ever listen to. I just finished listening to the whole thing, and I have to say…it was truly a pleasure. No need for previews on this one. Just download it and feel the vibes. You can thank me later. To download: Follow the link below, click “free download,” type in your info and they send you an email with the download link. Download is available in a number of formats. We suggest 320kbps. If this doesn’t start the party…you probably aren’t fun.
So…we have been off the womp game as of late, and we are going to make up for it in a big way…promise. Here is a nice start. These few are straight BOMBS…definitely a more “quality over quantity” approach this week. Enjoy, you bassheads you.
This mixtape was put together by the forever fraiche hip hop producer Terry Urban and it is quite good. Dope Couture knew what they were paying for when they backed this production; excellent advertising scheme, boys. I attached a link to soundcloud for a few of the songs, but go to mixstream.com to download the whole album.
Terry Urban’s words:
“In honor of Biggie’s passing 15 years ago on March 9, 1997… I wanted to do a special project.
Mick Boogie and I honored the anniversary of his passing with a special project called Unbelievable, which was hosted by Sean “Diddy” Combs and exceded 500k downloads online.
But to pay tribute this time, I wanted to do something different. Merge music styles. Bridge audiences together in new ways.
So I proudly present to you along with the homies from Dope Couture… Lana Del Rey and Notorious Big…
Born Ready To Die.
The music from Lana’s Born To Die… remixed and resampled.
The lyrics from Biggie’s Ready To Die… still timeless after all these years.
It’s a perfect marriage… dark and mysterious… soulful and gritty.
Lana told Vogue Magazine that Biggie was one of her biggest musical influences… and now… he is her musical collaborator.
