Some things in this world were just meant to be together. Bonnie & Clyde, peanut butter & jelly, Kim Kardashian & black men…and of course, house music & country. Wait, what? Surprising though it may be, Canadian duo Smalltown DJs made good work of some banjo chords on the truly unique “Good People”. Getting assistance from trap/rave producer Grandtheft, it’s sounds as if someone’s holding a rave on a backwoods Mississippi farm. You can check out the hilarious redneck compilation video below, stream the full song, and grab the download for free. Smalltown DJs will officially release the Good People EP on January 8th through T&A Records.
I’ve been in love with this song since I first heard it on Benzi‘s Girl Trapz Vol. 2. It’s Grandtheft‘s trap edit to “Not In Love” by Crystal Castles featuring Robert Smith. Remixing a Crystal Castles track is certainly a delicate task in and of itself, not even mentioning giving it the trap treatment. I give Grandtheft tremendous credit for the job he did on this one.
Grandtheft is the same dude who teamed up with Diplo to remix “Sweet Nothing”, a track I shared last weekend. He’s back with “We Run Dis”, a bass-fueled trap tune with reggaeton-influenced vocal samples. Listen and find the free download below. The link will ask you to like his Facebook page, a small price to pay for quality free music.
Diplo & Grandtheft have teamed up for a trap remix of “Sweet Nothing”, Calvin Harris’ massive hit with Florence Welch. I never would have expected this song to end up with a solid remix. I figured it would get the same old, mediocre & stereotypical electro/dubstep treatment, but this is totally different. In fact, I think the trap effect makes this song even better than the original.
