There's been a lot of talk lately on RefinedHype lately about "oh shit" music. Well this new Audible Doctor remix of REKS "Bang Bang" makes me feel like...well...oh sh*t! See more...

I'm on record as an ardent supporter of all things ignorantly Juicy J, but I'll admit that I didn't truly comprehend the power of "Bands A Make Her Dance" until it came one last night at the
strip club clubScrabble tournament. See more...

As if the original wasn't already confusing enough, Fat Joe has now done a R&B Remix to his "Pride N' Joy" single that, frankly, I like much better than the original. Shockingly, it turns out that Trey Songz singing sounds a lot better than Busta Rhymes. See more...

Tech N9ne's "Blur" is dope, Strange Music was down, Shane Eli is dope, and boom, here we are. While the original "Blur" features a woozy and dark instrumental, Eli completely flips the script, grabbing Afro-Cuban samples to transform Tech's storytelling skills into a hip-hop version on "Hotel California".

Even their hardest release so far, "Hammer Dance", wasn't quite the banger we were hoping for. Actually, for me it was just straight up forgettable. Well, it turns out there's no problem so big El-P can't fix by cooking up a ridiculous beat. Listen...See more...
On the real? Radio won't touch a song like Nottz 'You Need This Music (Remix)", and for that (and much more), fuck 'em. Once again the VA producer delivers some serous quality behind the board, flipping what I'm almost positive is a Willie Hutch sample into yet another head-nodder. Listen....See more...

Twenty years ago Pusha T's unedited verse to the G.O.O.D. Music "I Don't Like (Remix)" would have sat in some engineer's office for ten years. But this is 2012, so just 48 hours after the remix first dropped, Pusha T decided to take it upon himself to upload his original verse (with additional dopeboy references!) to SoundCloud.

Over at the mothership we just launched a new "Re-Produced" series where we grab three producers to, well, re-produce one of our recent favorite tracks. First up is Torae's "Do the Math", which first featured an of course dope Large Professor beat and now also contains instrumental offerings from Beewirks, King I Divine and BroadNMarket.

As I just got done explaining over on the mothership, ¡MAYDAY!'s new "Take Me To Your Leader" is really good, like really fucking good. And because the Miami crew apparently doesn't sleep, they quickly followed the album release with one of the doper actual remixes you're going to hear. Listen and download...See more...

Thankfully, nothing's changed on the "Turn Up the Mic (Remix)". It's not every day we get treated to some Nas rhymes over DJ Premier production, so much respect to Bumpy Knuckles for sharing some shine on his cut (and for delivering a solid verse in his own right). See more...See more...
