This is the soundtrack to my Friday night right now. Classic Drake remixed by new kid on the block from Vancouver, Rook Milo. Slightly trill and super chill. Rook says it best on his soundcloud “thanks to my drug dealer for makin this all possible.”

Back when I was at college in Virginia I would go to these rad parties in Richmond put on by the Audio Ammo crew. In those days I was just getting into raves and exploring the better side of electronic music and I’d see this kid Cranks DJ around town from time to time. Well fast forward a few years and I’m here in New York and this remix comes through my inbox and lo and behold, it’s Cranks! Last few years must have been good ones, this remix is a high powered house anthem and I’ve been jamming to his remix of Tiga all day! Definitely keep him in view, word on the street say’s he’ll be dropping an EP this summer!
Brooklyn based, The Golden Pony, are back with their deep spin on a hip hop classic, “Forgot About Dre”. Timothy, one half of the TGP says ”Dre was the reason I started making music. I was in a rap duo, working with a toy record player. We formed during elementary school after friend and I listened to N.W.A’s “Straight Outta Compton” 1000 times in a row. I think Thomas must have picked up some psychic connection through our afro’s when he selected the Acapella and said he have to remix it!”
Well, we’re stoked these guys picked this up and gave us some old school flavor with a fresh twist!
