Camp Lo – Sparkle (Teck-Zilla Remix) [Audio]

It’s only fitting that Camp Lo’s classic debut, “Uptown Saturday Night”, would celebrate its 20th anniversary on a Saturday (today, Jan. 28). And to pay homage to one of the album’s standout tracks, producer Teck-Zilla shares his jazzy and smooth remix of “Sparkle”. As it appears on the album, the track glides by with an effortless swagger thanks to the playful rhymes of Bronx duo Geechi Suede and Sonny Cheeba, and the loungy production of Ski Beatz. And in the hands of the Nigerian-born, Montreal-based Teck-Zilla, the track is still super-chill and ideal for a smoked-out jazz club. You know, kind of like the one depicted on the cover of “Uptown Saturday Night”. That is, of course, if the venue has a section for dancing and moving about, because Teck’s remix has a definite swing to it. His beat also injects some new sounds into listening experience, including some infectious horn stabs. And if you’re feeling his work on here, be sure to check out the producer’s latest projects; like last year’s Jackson 5 tribute, “Joe Jackson Kids”, and his record with rapper Allen Poe, “Lightbulb Over My Head While I’m Thinking“.

Nature – Throw It Up (DJ Concept Remix) [Audio]

In the right hands, a remix is like a fresh coat of paint capable of breathing new life into an existing track. Proving that point is Long Island producer DJ Concept, who on his latest remix has completely overhauled the sound of Nature’s slept-on 2014 joint, “Throw It Up.” The original track, which appeared on ‘Seasons Changed: Winter Edition,’ featured the legendary Queensbridge rapper on his NYC-rap steez. That was thanks in part to Marco Polo, whose instrumental captured the grit and grime of Nature’s rhymes. But for Concept, there was more to the track than that. As you can hear on his remix, the producer transformed the song into a feel-good anthem with looping flutes and pianos, giving the track a sentimental and soulful vibe. So when Nature spits, “Feet firm on the ground, is the way I’m rooted/ Ni**as lovin’ what I’m doing, plus the way I do it,” it sounds less like bravado and more like a celebration. And just in case you’ve yet to peep Concept’s other projects from this year, be sure to check his collab album ‘Seventy Nine’ with Planet Asia, in addition to his uplifting instrumental tape, ‘Flight Patterns 2.’ Concept’s remix of
