Thanks to Matt for letting me know about the ridiculously awesome mashup of The Notorious B.I.G. and the xx created by San Fran DJ Wait What. Don’t think I didn’t cruise around my tiny hometown, absolutely bumping “One More Chance” on my Mustang’s factory speakers. ‘Cause that really happened.
Here’s what DJ Wait What had to say about the idea:
“the notorious xx began as an idea in my sister’s apartment, where I was trying to figure out what it would sound like hearing juicy over vcr, and since then expanded to include all 11 tracks of the xx’s debut album chopped, sliced, and mashed up with biggie’s vocals. I made it over the span of a few weeks in boston, williamstown, albany, chicago, aspen, denver, and san francisco, and then mastered over 10 days in zurich, zermatt, london, san francisco, dallas, baton rouge and new orleans.”
