Let’s set the lay of the land here. Anderson .Paak is one of the most important American soul/urban exports of the past decade. Kaytranada, a staple part of the rise of the aforementioned talent and a frequent collaborator, continues to flip beats at the blink of an eyelid with maximal force. Together once again, this time via remix duties for Paak’s ever important ‘Bubblin’ single, Haiti’s finest dials back the beats to give both the Californian heavyweight and Busta’s complimentary vocal work a little more breathing room. Nothing trumps the original, but we sure aren’t pissed that Kay flipped the switch on this one.

NYC based, Terry Urban, provides a stroke of mash-up brilliance with this essential party weapon combo of Oliver’s ‘Light Years Away’ and Busta Rhymes ‘Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See.’ How could I resist, one of my favs of 2014 combined with Busta’s magnum opus? Whats not to dig? Cop the free DL.
