I have not thought about making an end of year top list until I heard this remix of Vampire Weekend’s Step. I had waited and waited for Vampire Weekend’s album “Modern Vampires of the City” earlier this year. And the first single was Step. I still love this song. Now almost a year later, we kick off the new year with a Wintertime Remix of the song which features vocally angelic rapper Danny Brown, Heems from Das Racist and Despot. Not what you would think of when told there’s a remix of Vampire Weekend, but it totally works. I mean Danny is spittin’ Shakespearian gold with lines like:
“And if any boo try to come for what’s mine,
A pair of size nines where the sun don’t shine”
Seriously, you gotta give this a listen then download here
And just for fun here’s my favorite Das Racist song Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell. Amy really likes this and has even had me make a ringtone for her and stop to take her picture by a combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell out in the wild.
Enjoy the song
