One of the best things about running a music blog is you often get the inside scoop on what some of your favorite artists are working on before it gets released. When Vandelux sent over an early rendition of “Chop it Like it’s Hot” — his new remix of Snoop Dogg and Pharrell‘s “Drop It Like It’s Hot” — I didn’t hesitate to fire back an enthusiastic reply, pleading for the chance to premiere it on Audio Aquarium.
Wish. Granted. This one arrives hot on the heels of Vandelux‘s wildly successful remix of Notorious B.I.G.‘s “Big Poppa”, and it proves once again that this newcomer is the real deal. Bouncy drums and blaring horns kick things off, and when the true beat drops and you hear that first “SnoooooOOOP” you’ll realize you’re in for a treat.
“Drop It Like It’s Hot” was a classic when it dropped in 2004, and it still holds up exceptionally well today — especially when it’s laced with Vandelux’s unique brand of catchy production. Download it for free and follow Vandelux on SoundCloud for more good music.
