Searching For The Perfect Remix: Buckwild

A case could be made for Buckwild being the most sophisticated remix scientist in hip-hop. He has a knack for being able to transform a good song into something incredible, as well as the ability to completely change the feel of a track without losing the essence of the original. Buckwild’s ‘Remix #1’ of ‘Life’s A Bitch’ flips the smoothed-out album version into an eerie vision of paranoia, while his interpretation ‘Daaam!’ twists a rowdy party starter into a smoked-out head nodder, while his version of ‘Rock On’ is nothing short of genius.

Surprisingly I gotta go with the Funkdoobiest remix.

“C’Mon Wit The Get Down”!!!! This is where DITC began their love affair with David Axelrod, lol.

Comment by oskamadison 07.14.10 @

The Nas remix is straight up sinister.

Comment by K-V 07.14.10 @

Most of his unreleased/remixes album Diggin’ In The Crates is somewhat spectacular.

Comment by A.S. 07.14.10 @

Damn that’s a tough choice! His other Mad Izm remix is dope too

Comment by Cro 07.14.10 @

The other Mad Izm remix is the best Buckwild remix imo.

Artifacts feat. Busta Rhymes – ‘C’mon Wit Da Git Down’ [Remix]

Comment by Jaz 07.14.10 @

Alright. I’m with you fellas.

Comment by A'Peks 07.14.10 @

Bring It On. I mean, it improves on the orginal in so many ways that it’s incredible. And IMHO that’s the primary reason for doing a remix.

Said it before, Artifacts.

Comment by vollsticks 07.15.10 @

rock on all day

Comment by KrmnL 07.16.10 @

the other Mad ism remix is the best though

Comment by KrmnL 07.16.10 @

That Liks remix is crazy. DITCH blessed them, cause the Diamond D remix of the Next Level is crazy too.

Comment by The Funkologist 07.16.10 @

I always liked that sound of like spray paint cans on “Rock On”

Comment by keatso 07.16.10 @

How bout best Buckwild tracks besides Times UP this list is boring .. nothing special ..Alladat from EVERYTHING IS EVERYTHING “Quiet baldhead is like a bad motherfucker” my 2c

Comment by setrule 07.16.10 @

times up is dope, but the les demerele sample makes up most of what that instrumental is.
always preferred the arsenal rmx to life’s a bitch.

Comment by the snow donkey 07.17.10 @

You can never, ever, ever, ever go wrong with a Cal Tejader sample…”Daaamn” wins all the way.

We know who Buck was listening to when he did these remixes…it’s like he raided the catolog.

cosign setrule. the list is “eh”.

Comment by dmfslimm 07.17.10 @

The hard, dusty drums. The weeded xylophone loops.
I like all of them but I’ll pick Bring It On. To my ears,OK over DITC beats equals audio gold!

Comment by chronwell 07.21.10 @

Oh i forgot the Guru “respect the architect ” remix by buck…

Comment by dolo 07.22.10 @

I would’ve voted for the “Fat Pockets” remix, but it’s not here. That’s one of my favorite beats by anyone ever. Did it not qualify because it was for his own group?

Comment by Urkel Moe Dee 07.23.10 @

artifacts and buss. sometimes i pull out “between a rock…” just fa that remix…
