This is a fun one: Viper Creek Club with an off-beat take on “What Happened To That Boy” by Birdman featuring Clipse. The Neptunes’ original production sounded like hip-hop made in a futuristic ice age. VCC’s version is distinctly warmer — like the version played at Earth’s party before hell froze over.

Both the original and the remixed versions of “I Need You” are masterful. JusMoni‘s spoken-word is heartfelt, soulful and intimate on the original recording. VCC’s version takes the vocals and gives them flight, turning Moni’s declarations into something beyond delicate words jotted in a diary; here, it sounds as if she’s pronouncing her unconditional love from an electronic mountaintop. It’s just as moving and essential, but in a completely different way.
