niceFingers is a Los Angeles-based production duo, and they’ve just offered up an awesome remix of “Forgot About Dre.” The track begins by sampling the haunting violin melody from “Reqiuem For A Dream,” and suddenly gets a lot more interesting when the bassline from Dr. Dre and Eminem’s classic tune strolls in. All of this madness crescendos and finally drops into a bass-heavy glitch-hop arrangement. niceFingers do a really nice job of transforming these unique sounds into one cohesive work, and you can grab the download for free. Looking for more? I’d check out their latest album, “Dreamery.” Six tracks, infinite vibes.

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!
