jj – “My Way” – 11.1.12




jj‘s “My Way” was one of my go-to songs back in the good ol’ days when I first discovered Hype Machine, which was my introduction to dj remixes and ‘mash-ups.’ I was blown away by ‘mashups.’ I mean, who knew you could throw Busta Rhymes and the Chili Peppers together and make it sound good? (see DJ Strokes’ “Dangerous”) jj is widely known for their covers of contemporary hip hop songs, such as Lil Wayne’s “Lollipop,” The Game’s “My Life,” and Jeremiah’s “Birthday Sex.” This ‘mashup’ in particular is different for me because I’m still blown away by it…Lil Wayne’s verse just blends so well with jjs mellow Caribbean beat. And if you’re wondering who that disturbing voice is at the beginning, it’s Charles Manson.

jj is a Swedish pop duo made up of Joakim Benon and Elin Kastlander. They release music through two labels, US based Secretly Canadian and Swedish based Sincerely Yours. Check em out!
