In The Re-Mix
It's seldom you find exceptional remixes these days. If you're diligent and have enough patience and luck, you'll stumble upon jewels like these:
Eric B. & Rakim: "Let The Rhythm Hit 'Em (Beirut Remix)"
You can check out his work here. I don't know much about him other than the fact that he's got a Myspace page. The remixes I've heard aren't bad and you can probably still download a bunch from his page. The above remix is perfect. Rakim never sounded better.
Snoop Dogg: "Signs (Siik Remix)"
Personally, I think it's better than the original. I never really liked Pharrell's track for this anyway. Siik is adept at transforming some of your favorites into something very worthwhile:
Amerie: "1 Thing (Siik Remix)"
