DJ Mix | Telephoned "Keep Their Heads Ringin"
If you're not familiar, Telephoned is Fools Gold Records artist Sammy Bananas and his right hand singing beauty Maggie Horn. As a a pair they reconstruct and cover popular hip-hop and pop tunes, giving them a tasteful-yet-cheeky bump into hipster territory. After the duo is done sending the likes of Drake, Rihanna and Gucci Mane through its musical game of telephone, the songs come out as bubbling house anthems, dirty dubstep stonkers and pretty much everything in between.
We can go on trying to put the formula into words, but its better heard in high fidelity. Hence this latest mixtape, "Keep Their Heads Ringin."

The mixtape's hightlights:
- takes on Big Boi's "Shine Blockas" and Chromeo's "Night by Night" (track 1).
- Rihanna a rude boy twist on, well, "Rude Boy" (track 3).
- Playful dubstepper becomes the backdrop for a cover of Gucci Mane's "Lemonade." (track 6)
- Young Money's bedrock is laid out as the bedding for The Cure's "Friday I'm In Love." (track 7)
- Switching to the dance world Simian Mobile Disco's sleeper hit "Cruel Intentions" gets a rerub. (track 9)
- Chelly's "Took the Night" gets its harsh mellowed. (track 13)
- Two of this year's best jams Yeasayer's "O.N.E." and Gyptian's "Hold Yuh" make a perfect pair. (track 16)
