Bank Remixes Part 5: "What Up Gangsta"

So it came a little earlier than scheduled, but we couldn't wait to post the new remix.  It's strange to think of a song from 2003 as a throwback, but nonetheless, this joint got made over.  Typically we lean towards producing songs with more modern sounds, but if you download the track you'll hear that churning out those raw, grimy beats isn't really a problem for us either.

Bank Remixes Part 4: "You're Not My Girl"

Remix 4 is up, check out the video!  I had fun with this Ryan Leslie song, as it was originally recorded at 108 bpm- a nice break from the slower tempos of most of today's hip hop and r&b.

I'm not really sure how to classify this remix; it's not really genre specific, but it has a loungy-club vibe that's somehow able to be laid back even with some aggressive, off-kilter drums.

Bank Remixes Part 2: "Forever"

Thanks to everyone who downloaded our first remix, the response was good enough to warrant that we keep this little experiment going.

I mixed "Always Strapped" in the box (within the DAW) and it came out pretty good.  This time around, Wes mixed "Forever" on the SSL.  If you compare the two songs, the differences in depth and warmth of sound are striking.  My only real gripe with this remix is the source audio of the a capella for "Forever."  The vocals were riddled with filters and processing (especially on Em's verse for some reason) that degraded the audio quality, and there wasn't much we could do but to work around what was there.  The instrumental sounds much fuller and clearer, but overall I think this remix came out really well.  

Check out the video and let me know what you think.  If you like it, click the image link below to download it!

As with all of the remixes we do, the instrumental is available for artists to spit on.  If you're interested, email us at

Bank Remixes Part 1: "Always Strapped"

Happy New Year!  Beginning this month, we'll be sharing some new material- a collection of remixes titled, appropriately enough, "Bank Remixes."  Throughout 2010,  new tracks will be available to download.

Some of these tracks are intentional remixes, others are "accidental/experimental scrub" tracks that just happen to sound good with the selected a capella.

Check out the video (also remixed) for the first installment- "Always Strapped," Birdman feat. Lil Wayne.

If you like it, feel free to dowload the song- just click the image below the video player.  If you're an artist and you want to use the instrumental, email us at and we'll hook it up.  Enjoy!

The Bank:  it's 2KX, let's get it!
