An excellent flip of the song that made Mayer Hawthorne’s career (audio)

 

I guess you could say this is Mayer Hawthorne’s musical career coming full circle. He’s said before that he used to sample his own playing because I got tired of dealing with copyright lawsuits. Now he himself is getting sampled for this excellent flip of the song that made his career. Just like any good remix does, this right retains the feel of the original yet adds a modern-day, hip-hop bump too that feels a little uneasy at first, but ultimately comes together at the end. I would be interested in hearing a whole album of Strange Arrangement flips if the end results all sounded like this. Definitely check this out!
