Justus Does 808s

electronic artist Max Justus just posted eight remixes of songs from Kanye West’s controversial 808s & Heartbreak (Maura and I like it!). Justus adds beats and synths and ultimately turns it into the electronic record it may have always been, blowing out the vocals in either direction–-toward the literal or toward the figurative–-but never playing them very straight.

    These are pretty great, though my heart skipped a beat when I thought for a second it said JUSTICE does 808s. K.A.N.Y.E.D.A.N.C.E. Can you not see it?

    Groovy. Will check this out.

    Incidentally, I’m not much on Kanye, but when 808s is good, it’s very good. (Of course, the opposite also holds true.)

    These are great – I’ve been playing them since right before he recorded them!
