If you didn’t think deep house would suit Snoop, think again.
If you’ve been having a craving to hear Snoop’s ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ in a deep house style, you’re in luck – The Golden Pony have just dropped that hot remix for you (sorry…).
It’s confusingly good how well this works. Mostly because Snoop’s vocals are a cross between fitting abnormally well and not sitting well at all. It’s really hard to properly nail down how well it works, but on a whole it’s as mindlessly entrancing and enjoyable as deep house should be.
What is a certainty, though, is how well the Snoop vocal sample mixes alongside the Hillary Duff whistle sample. Extracting the whistle from ‘Sparks’ brings a mesmerising hook to the mix, giving a level of depth to the fizzle and thud of the main instrumentation – as well as Snoop himself.
