13 Beats for the Week (10/21)

Brad Anglum

1. “Hey Hey” by Dennis Ferrer

Check out the remixes done for this track by the New Jersey based DJ Den­nis Ferrer from heavyweights Crookers and Vandalism.

2. “Come Ere and Say That” by Rusko (Hide & Seek Remix)

Number one on the Billboard Jug 100, Rusko remixed Derulo’s “Whatcha Say” earlier this year. It starts off virtually identical and then takes a sharp right turn with the heavy synth-laden bass which is SOP for dubstep.

3. “It Wasn’t Me” Shaggy

Ah, simply a classic. I have to start us­ing the “shaggy defense” a little more in my life.

4. “Hey You There ” by Soulja Boy

In the words of hotnewhiphop.com, “VERY HOTTTTT.”

5. “Choice Notes” by Alex Winston (Tomb Crew Remix)

“London’s rising stars, TOMB CREW, bring the noise and no mis­take. Their bottomless box of Dubstep, House, Kuduro and Bmore is borderline madness and a formidable dance floor beast in their very capable tag-teaming DJ hands” – No Love Lost Records … whatever that means.

6. “Ray Ban Vision” by A-Trak feat. CyHi Da Prynce

A-Trak teams up with new G.O.O.D. Music signee CyHi Da Prince. I don’t know much about CyHi Da Prince, but I like what I’ve heard. Kanye may in­deed be crazy, but he does have an ear for good music.

7. “Mad” by Magnetic Man

This dubstep supergroup consists of Skream, Benga and Artwork. They recently released this track, which is surprisingly audible considering Skream and Benga’s track record.

8. “A** N’ T******s” by DJ Assault

Known for little else than his stunning work on this track, DJ Assault was at the forefront of the little known Sex Rap genre when he put this track out.

9. “Hot in Herre” by Nelly

Imagine it’s your 2002 bar mitzvah, you just sweated out your reading of the Torah, but you’re raring to get the party started off right because you’re a man.

10. “Distubia” by Rihanna.

I really don’t like this song, but I just had to put it on the list; it wouldn’t be complete without it.

11. “Anything Worse” by The Gaslamp Killer

Gaslamp Killer reminds me of that crazy Chef from Apocalypse Now. Re­gardless of his appearance (I don’t dis­criminate), he has a futuristic sound that is sure to please.

12. “Kill Your Co-Workers” by Flying Lotus

I can’t get enough of Flying Lotus lately. He put out his third studio al­bum Cosmogramma this past year and has already put out another EP enti­tled Pattern + Grid World this month. I guess FlyLo is on that grind you hear so much about.

13. “I Got Chills” by Grease

What better way to cap off this illus­trious list of non sequitur tracks? If you weren’t already weirded out by this eclec­tic bunch of songs, the classic “I Got Chills” may have just done it.
