I love a bit of JT, me. Who doesn’t? And you know what? I don’t care if Timbaland has ripped every single one of his beats off from obscure Turkish folk tunes and (frankly awful) Finnish electronica. Fair play to the man for turning some crummy chip-tune into commercially viable music.
All of which is a long way of saying I was delighted to find out that the new Contrakids track is built around a sample of “What Goes Around… / …Comes Around”. It’s something between an original track, a cover, and a chopped and screwed remix.
Ah, chopped and screwed. Those were the days.
Anyway, you can download “All The Way Back” below. It’s a fun foray into the weirdness that time-stretching can unleash on a sample, and the heavily Auto-Tuned vocals work nicely alongside Justin’s own Prince-wannabe falsettos. Give it a spin.
