Patten – RE-EDIT70

Patten is a London-based experimental duo known for their awkward experimentation of electronic music. Their new remix compilation RE-EDITS Vol. 2 is jam-packed full of reworks from Boards of Canada (stream ‘REEDIT 70’ above), Cocteau Twins, Cypress Hill, even Rihanna. Each track gets  its own music video as well.

Futuristic, chaotic, next-level — Patten’s goal seems to want to be or smash together the avante-garde.

Solange – Cranes in the Sky (Kaytranada Edit)

In the footsteps of Dilla… (image via FB)

Canadian artist Kaytranada has been making beats since he was 15 years old, so dedicated to the craft he made a new chop every day for three years thereafter. Just scroll through his SoundCloud page — there are mixtapes, a series of his own dope productions, and remixes of the Fugees, Jill Scott, and Danny Brown. But the remix he dropped today of Solange’s ‘Cranes in the Sky’ is exceptional.

“I couldn’t help it and i can’t deny how good it sounds. this is just an edit to play on my dj sets, and i played it once and everybody wanted it right away. Honestly i was gonna wait to see if Solange or her team or whoever works for her wouldve ask me to do an offical remix so if they still want to, i could make it sound better than that version but ohhhhh, what the hell….anyways i highly recommend you that new Solange album “A Seat At The Table”.”

From hip-hop to RnB, electronica, and funk, Kaytranada does it all, so eclectic he even leaves the genre blank with ‘?????’ on his Facebook page.

Hiatus Kaiyote “The Lung” (Paul White Unofficial Remix)

Just off his production for Danny Brown’s Autricity Exhibition comes a remix of Hiatus Kaiyote from Paul White, one of my favorite producers.

White’s beats vacillate from hip-hop to electronica, but he most often excels in lacing the two together. Not sure where to start with Paul? Check out these other gems.
