Remix Wednesday: Hip-Hoptronica Edition feat. The Floozies and Wick-it the Instigator

We're excited to bring you our first edition of Remix Wednesday. We're not going to put a regular schedule on this, but we can say that if we continue to drop some hot remixes on you, its gonna be on a Wednesday. Now, on to the music!

This week we are presenting two tracks that are both coincidentally electronic remixes of classic hip-hop tunes.

First up is The Floozies out of Lawrence, KS with their electro-funk remix of Snoop Dogg's "Drop It Like It's Hot." The Floozies have become well known for their high-energy, genre-bending live shows, but more recently they have been flexing their electronic producer muscles. Their most recently released album, Under Another Sun, showed off their chops at building tracks more suited to the world of electronica. The refreshing part of The Floozies sound is that even though they are dipping their toes in the trendy sounds of today, their methods are still based in traditional instrumentation. Check out the funky womp of their newest remix at their soundcloud:

Next, Wick-it the Instigator out of Nashville, TN brings us his epic version of Luniz's "I Got Five On It." In the past 12 months, Wick-It has blown up on the scene mainly from his release of the Big Boi / Black Keys Mash-up entitled The Brothers of Chico Dusty. I was excited when I saw this classic hip-hop track in Wick-Its ever notorious facebook feed. I've enjoyed seeing Wick-It blend genres as his hip-hop based work is some of my favorite. Much of Wick-It's earlier work was based in the beat culture, but ever since his forays into electronica began, he's been bringing us remixes in the form of iconic, dance floor bangers like the Bed Intruder Song (Wick-it DubStep Remix). Check out his latest track and all his other music at his soundcloud:
