There's nothing I enjoy more than a good ol' fusion of hip hop and electronic beats, especially when its done with forward-thinking production and executed correctly. Enjoy your Monday (as much as you can) with a tune that will make you simultaneously reminisce and hear something new.
The mysterious duo BLU J puts a massive twist on Twista's original "Overnight Celebrity," transforming it into their own future-infused "OVERNGHT CLBRTY." (You know its a real future beat when the title is in all caps with no vowels.)
The vocal samples are flipped throughout the song to match the futuristic vibe, making the track ready to take over the club with "something these hoes'll like." A breathtaking bass carries the R&B hit into another dimension with its fat and upbeat synths. I couldn't imagine a better way to make early 2000s hip hop sound current and future while still paying respect to the original.
Check out more from the San Francisco- and Vancouver-based duo on Facebook and even send them some love on Twitter. If you're really digging the track, throw them a <3 on HYPEM. Most importantly, you can download "OVRNGHT CLBRTY" for free here.
