The latest remix from bass music producer Psymbionic is a steamy fusion between hip hop groove and a touch of spicy moombahton shuffle. This remix of the Beastie Boys’ classic “Intergalactic” is permeated by textured yet tasteful basslines, serving the original justice for its place in hip hop history. Along your journey through this remix, you might just find yourself whisked away to galaxies unknown aboard laser shooting starships.

Ok so the third video/single off my album Future Loops is out now!
It’s another cover, my version of the awesome track Crimewave by the awesome band Crystal Castles and is just beatboxing/vocals through 2 Kaoss Pads and my loop pedal.
Fact about the track: We recorded and filmed this (with Simon Ellis) on the same day we did the Pixies track!

Los Rakas might be single-handedly moving the Latino hip-hop capital of the U.S. to the Bay Area. The Panamanian-American duo, comprised of cousins Raka Rich and Raka Dun (pronounced “Doon”), has been churning out a critically acclaimed fusion of hip-hop, dancehall, and folkloric-tinged bass since 2006. Armed with recognition from NPR for producing one of their favorite tracks of 2011 (“Vengo de Panama”), as well as their new single “Pimpin’ Smokin’ Dro,” Los Rakas have their sights set on global hip-hop domination.
Taking their name from the Panamanian word “Rakataka,” used to negatively describe someone from the ghetto, Los Rakas have set out to both inspire fellow “rakas” by becoming successful despite their circumstances, and also to turn the current Latino hip-hop world on its head. Past singles like “Mi Barrio,” from their Panabay Twist mixtape, and “Soy Raka,” which premiered on The FADER, blend the instantly recognizable slapping bass of Bay Area hip-hop with a distinctive Latin flavor that sets them apart from the pack. Most recently, DJ Tony Touch featured the group’s ode to Cali Dro, “Hierba,” on his Shade 45 show last week, and acclaimed DJ/Producer Diplo recently included Los Rakas in a special Mad Decent mix for Sirius XM series ‘Blow Your Head’.
However, their first single of 2012 is a surprising break from Los Rakas’ signature sound. On “Pimpin’ Smokin’ Dro,” not only do they rhyme in English, but they also bring a rare mellowed-out, club vibe to the table. The single, with its high-strung twangs and trunk-rattling sub bass, is a celebration of The Golden State’s unmatched quality of Mary Jane. And if their Bay Area allegiance was to ever be questioned, it’s firmly validated by West Coast rap don E-40′s guest feature on the track, where he clearly proclaims, “I’m from the Bay and I f**k with real motherf*****s like Los Rakas!”
Following “Pimpin’ Smokin’ Dro,” which will be available as a loosie on iTunes on January 31st, is Los Rakas’ upcoming project, Raka Love. The EP will showcase their foray into the world of R&B and will be released this Valentine’s Day for free via their website, LosRakas.com. The “Panabay” duo will be releasing two videos from the Raka Love project starting on February 1st with “Enamorado de Ti,” their popular refix of Lil Wayne’s “How To Love” on the release date.
Rock-It! Scientists have just come out with their newest track, an electro-pop dance remix of Rihanna’s “You Da One”. The original has proved itself as a smash hit on the radio, but Rock-It! decided it was time to bring “You Da One” to the clubs and gave it the facelift it deserved.
