This mash-up mixtape has been circulating around the blogosphere for a few days now, charming it’s way into the hearts of hip-hop and post-punk dream-pop lovers alike. Mixed and spliced with skillful precision by Bay Area DJ Wait What, The Notorious xx started with the curiosity of hearing Biggie’s “Juicy” over The xx’s “VCR”. Since then, DJ Wait What blended words by the late Notorious B.I.G. onto The xx’s entire debut album, creating something original and inspired.

Watch the video for “Juicy-R”, the song that started it all, below:

Reviews

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
