Our boy The Melker Project sent over this dope remix/mashup of Jay-Z’s latest record “Open Letter”. I love it. Cop the download in the player above. Mr. Melker grabbed a trap beat, Alex Young’s Relapse, and samples from the classic “Strawberry Letter 23” by Shuggie Otis.
One of my favorite tracks from Danger Mouse and MF Doom’s (DangerDoom) collaboration is certainly Benzie Box. Here the banger gets mashed/remixed on this cut from Opiuo of Melbourne, Australia. You’ll recognize a lot of tasty elements in this brilliant rework. Enjoy.
Bit Funk delivers this remix of A Tribe Called Quest’s Once Again. This is a really cool remix that would likely get much love in a party setting. That said, download this bad boy and give it a spin. Dig it.
Friends! Listeners! Lend me your ears! Today I have the joyous pleasure of delivering a new Mayor’s Mix after quite a hiatus. Being halfway through the February, I thought I’d share with you my favorite tracks from last month. Without further ado… here is Mayor’s Mix January 2013.

4. Creep(Kaytranada Remix) - TLC - If you’ve read even a few posts, you’ll know that Montreal’s Kaytranada is a current musical fixation. Homie kills it on the beats. Very soulful with snappy drums. You’ll see more of him. Originally posted on January 10.
The homie I found on Soundcloud, MikeWr, is back on the blog with this hip hop mashup of Nujabes and Felt(Slug and Murs). Nujabes beat is, as always, an amazing piece of jazz hop texture perfectly suited for Slug and Murs to tear apart. Dig it.
