The only thing I know about Curtis Vodka is that he posts on the hollerboard and they reviewed his mix cd in the Fader (which we never got, Curtis if you read this, we’re interested), but this guy has put out a ridiculous record of b-more influenced edits (right here) so I had to do a little investigation. And the kid is from freaking Anchorage Alaska! That wouldn’t really mean much if the tracks here weren’t so badass. If you like those kind of emo Baltimore cuts like “Girlfriend / Boyfriend,” you just found your new favorite shit right here. Curtis does these things so properly with mellow keyboards laid on top of the standard drum breaks, the exact right amount of vocals and all the little things that put them above a simple mash up. Enough of pandering though, check the sound on his mix of Cassie’s “Me and You(1).” Shit bumps. And the hip hop remixes are so on point, check “Shoulder Bounce(2)” and “Mary Jane(3);” just drawing on that southern smoke with codeine keys and choppy “Sing Sing” beats to keep your brain moving. Shits like a fucking speedball son! I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t kept up with my Omarions and Chris Browns so I’m not sure who the singer is on “Hey Girl(4),” but that might be the most addictive joint on here. Bonus track is a remix of the OG “Diamonds Are Forever(5).” So soulstrut has their outlet in the Melting Pot label, and now the hollerboard has theirs with Flamin Hotz, is that it? Bring in on, message board peoples got talent.
Also look out Pop Monteral I think CV is going to be making a guest DJ spot. more details as they come together.1 comment
