Best Remix

Matic 808

Overnight stardom doesn’t come often to Baltimore musicians, but if anyone got close this year, it was Matic 808. The Rosedale explosion back in May caused by a derailed freight train crashing into a truck filled with garbage moved him to remix a video of two men driving near the scene as it happened. After getting a few hundred views within a matter of hours, people were locked in on Matic. His brilliance reached new heights, though, when he remixed Kanye West’s Yeezus album as he was listening to it for the first time. Capturing the album’s most entertaining vocals and looping them over heavy bass and completely reconstructing some tracks made his remix a source of comic relief on top of making the album more danceable than Kanye’s original version.
