Since Yeezus dropped on June 18th critiques, lovers and haters have been talking about it incessantly. Artists have been inspired by the avant-gardist, politically charged, minimalistic album. The unconventionality of the album with tracks such as “Black Skinhead” and “I am a God” allows for a wide degree of experimentation. So go on, and check out some of our favorite remixes of tracks taken from Yeezus from the likes of Shad & SKratch Bastid, Mano, Nate Belasco, Chambaland and Hit-Boy, below.


01) Shad & SKratch Bastid – “Bound 2” (Dub)



Canadian rapper Shad succeeds in nearly making “Bound 2,” the last track of Yeezus, his own. His voice  ascends to great heights in many moment throughout the track. Even though it lacks some of Kanye’s passion and anger, Shad remains engaging. DJ Skratch Bastid handled the cuts. Between this ode to Kanye and his compelling twerk-track entitled “Miley,” the Canadian DJ is strengthening his essential role in the music community.


02) Mano – “Hold My Liquor” (Mano Remix)



Mano Bootleg, Kanye West’s DJ – offers us a spaced-out remix “Hold My Liquor.” In this track he lets loose his version of Kanye and Keef’s track taking apart the bare bones of the track and remixes it with an uptempo-style.


03. Nate Belasco (Black Skinhead Vs. Tame Implala) – “Elephant” (#1 Mashup Metamix)



Nate Belasco produced the strongest remix of “Black Skinhead” using Kanye’s tune and layering it with and eerily compatible track.


04) Chambaland – “Personal Yeezus” (Kanye West Vs. Depeche Mode)



Dan Chamberlain remixed the abrasive track merging Depeche Mode‘s “Personal Jesus” and Ye’s “Black Skinhead.”


05) Hit-Boy – “New Chains (James Somersett)”




Hit-Boy may no longer be aligned with Kanye or G.O.O.D. Music contractually, but the 26-year-old rapper/producer recently released a track entitled “New Chains,” inspired by “New Slaves.” Hit-Boy released a music video before the original artist had the chance to. During the first half Hit Boy attempts to copy Yeezy’s flow. Half-way throught a beat arrangement occurs allowing Hit-Boy to throw bars that sounded more like himself. The two rappers share similar views on the topic of consumerism. The track title here alludes to James Somersett, a victim of slavery that gained his freedom in 1772 through English and Welsh law. 301 years later, rap honors his memory. That is what Hip-Hop culture is about: honor and respect.

Greg Grease – “Forward”



If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break.

Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage.
