“Hey Ya” by Outkast was the first song I danced with a girl to. It was at my friend Josh’s bar mitzvah, yet I can’t exactly remember the lovely young lady’s name. Regardless, if you were born in between the years 1990-1996, “Hey Ya” probably holds a special place in your musical heart.
When I saw that Sweater Beats and vocalist KAMAU had covered the millennial smash hit, I was immediately intrigued. The bass bumping production is layered with background vocal harmonies that accompany KAMAU’s lead vocals beautifully. When the chorus kicks in, we’re graced with a great summer synth line and the memories of screaming “HEY YA!” at all those bar/bat mitzvah’s, school dances, and even weddings.
So, sit back, pop in an old VHS tape recording of an episode of ABC’s Saturday Morning Cartoons, and enjoy your hearty taste of nostalgia for the day.
Producer Sweater Beats took JoJo’s “When Love Hurts” and put his own brilliant twist on it in celebration of his upcoming Future Feels world tour. The tour, which will last 3 months, features stops in Europe with Bondax as well as stints in the states with K Camp and GTA, finishing up with shows in Australia in December. Should be a good time filled with tons of grooves! You can bump this remix while you head to Sweater’s website to cop tickets for a tour stop near you!
Earlier this week, we got another strong remix from Sweater Beats. The boy just doesn’t know how to stop. This time by flipping Gallant’s “Weight In Gold”, which has become a huge hit this summer. And to switch it up some more, Sweater Beats played some guitar on this one!

Well, damn. It’s only Tuesday and already this week has been an incredible one for new music. Yesterday, I got to obsess over the new D’Angelo album (which is excellent if you haven’t indulged) and today, I get to flip my styles around with a grooving Sweater Beats remix of Kimbra’s “Settle Down.” According to SB, the ‘redux’ is a track he made for the tour he did with Chance The Rapper earlier this year.
Speaking of shows, rumor around the 1833 office is he may be back soon, so make sure to keep an eye out! 😉 :blush: :alien:
Master bootlegger and STYLSS affiliate Cestladore put together a mini-collection of tracks which use fan-chosen samples. If you support our pal by purchasing the album (do this please), five bonus tracks are included. Be merry, y’all :snowman: :telephone_receiver: :hearts:
Brooklyn-based HuhWhat&Where affiliate Sweater Beats is in the middle of touring, but he stopped by Red Bull Studios to grace us with a selection of current dream-pop favorites fused with some hip-hop and soul to smooth out the mix, adding his signature ~”i make yr booty bounce”~ feel. This is one of the sexiest tracklists I’ve seen in a while; from JT to Kelela to Aluna George, Sweater Beats probably isn’t capable of putting out something disappointing. :shirt: :headphones: :hearts:
