gotdion: remixes volume 5.
GotdioN is back and so am I!
His new and fifth volume of remixes includes his takes on 8Ball & MJG, BigBoi & The Purple Ribbon Allstars, Chris Brown, Christina Aguilera, Clipse, Destiny's Child, Kanye West, Ludacris, Missy Elliott, N.E.R.D., Richboy, Omarion, & Timbaland.
I find that his remix of Destiny's Child's "Emotion" is definitely one of my favorites. The original song and the Neptunes remix never quite did it for me, and it remains my least favorite Destiny's Child single to date. Whether it was intentional, GotdioN's reinterpretation of the song changes the feeling entirely. Originally, the song is sad with an element of sweetness. In this version, the R&B trio sounds pissed. The hypnotic nature of the beat brings out a jealous and neurotic level that isn't heard before. Like, seriously. Beyonce will cut you if you don't tell her where you are now. Because she motherfuckin' needs you.
And let's talk about that "Icebox" remix. I'm not talking about that whack-ass shit with Usher. I'm talking GotdioN. I can't even listen to the original anymore...the energy can't compare to this. If you like what you hear be sure to cop the free download of GotdioN's remixes over at his space.
BLOGWATCH: CAUSE=TIME features two new tracks by Kenna, who you may know from PSP commercials or his time as Fred Durst's protege (groan, I know...but he's actually kind of good). Gorilla Vs. Bear brings us the import-only Timbaland track featuring the one and only M.I.A. as well as Marissa Nadler covering Xiu Xiu.
