A common saying in the insanely lucrative music blogging industry is this: “An artist is only as good as his best Biggie remix”.
Ok, no one actually says that… but it’s kind of true. The Notorious B.I.G. is the most remixed hip hop artist of all time — it’s a shame that only one in ten of those remixes is worth listening to. Today we’re in luck because Vandelux’s “Big Poppa” remix is well worth your time, serving as a shining example of why this Luxembourg-based producer deserves your attention.
Vandelux strips “Big Poppa” of it’s swanky production and replaces it with neon synths, a fat-ass beat, and a vibe that’s impossible to resist. It’s a modern day rendition of track we all know and love, and it’s a free download to boot.
