This was an unexpected but very cool thing. FreshNerd dropped us a line to let us know that he’s remixed the beats from Cyndi Lauper’s She So Unusual and we should check it out. Which we did.

As a fan of drum n’ bass and someone who thinks the original record here is ok, I ended up really liking this. The beat tape thing was a new listening experience for me, as much as I think I know what’s up, but it’s totally worthwhile.

This is the kind of thing that illustrates how DJ’ing is an art. You’ve got the beats from a pop record, redone, and now standing on their own as a record. It totaly works.

You all should head over to the 100 Akres Productions Bandcamp and download this, it’s free.
