Can’t Tell Me Nothin

Womp Womp Wednesday

M83 – Midnight City (Eric Prydz Private Remix) || Download

This one’s a bit more house than dubstep, but a banger nonetheless. Currently sitting on the top of Hype Machine charts, this one will be great for any parties this weekend. I know I’ll be dropping it when I DJ Friday night.

The Weeknd – Same Old Song (Paper Diamond Remix) || Download

This one starts with the original bass, and then Paper Diamond adds a whole new layer of filth and grime on top of it. Abel Tesfaye, better known by his stage name The Weeknd, is pretty much the only R&B I can/will listen to, so it’s pretty sick to see him dubbed out by one of my favorite new producers, Paper Diamond.

Kanye West – Can’t Tell Me Nothing (GriZ Remix) || Download

Being a Chicago boy and a huge fan of ‘Ye, I may or may not be a little biased to this song. I’ve seen GriZ before, but before this track have yet to be impressed by his work. The BPM of the acapella seems a little fast, but the production GriZ layers on top of this track is awesome, in my opinion. I’m just saying how I feel man.

99 Problems/Can’t Tell Me Nothin’ – Aloe Blacc

99 Problems/Can’t Tell Me Nothin’ – Aloe Blacc

So this is really awesome. Aloe Blacc, the old school, vintage soul man of our generation recreates Kanye’s “Can’t Tell Me Nothin'” and mixes it with Jay-Z’s “99 Problems.” If you don’t know Aloe, check out his “I Need a Dollar,” which is a super dope song itself.

He performed this at BBC along with a few other choices. This was definitely the most interesting. Kind of like his version of a mash-up. His band does an awesome job recreating Kanye’s instrumental, and Aloe’s voice is as kick ass as always.

I really hope Aloe’s talent becomes recognized on a wider basis. I’m talking Grammy’s level. Multiple. I’d love to see him work with hip-hop artists as well. Everyone seems to have their own version of “I Need a Dollar,” and it would be awesome seeing him do original stuff for rappers.

Ye I’m looking at you.
