SNBRN has finally returned after a nationwide spring tour with his followup to “Raindrops” released back in January with an inventive remix of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing”.

It’s playoff season in the NBA which can only mean one thing: Pat Lok is PLAYOFF READY. Just like Steph Curry, just like LeBron…Pat Lok elevates his (remix) game during playoff season (playoff season in this case meaning that special time of the year when Spring creeps into Summer & all the grooviest songs are produced). When taking on an Indie heavyweight like The Knocks, Pat Lok didn’t flail like Chris Paul or flop like Blake Griffin (can you tell I hate the Clippers?!?)…he calmly stepped back & hit the game winner. Check out his remix of “Classic” below & replay that game winning groove over & over…

Fresh off his remix of Big Data, LEFTI comes right back at’cha with another impressive remix, this time of fellow New Yorkers, Chícos. While LEFTI’s Big Data remix channeled more of an Electro Pop/Funk sound, his remix of Chícos not only ups the tempo but the boogie factor as well. From the cosmic opening groove to the stinging closing guitar rips, LEFTI’s remix of “Hooked” is non-stop brilliance.
