Whenever I hear a rap or viral song become big I always think “Yup, I bet there’s a caked up remix of this already”. The tactic of remixing popular hip-hop and pop songs has seemed to be working for these guys – within the past year they have blown up more than ever. Caked Up isn’t just a gimmick either – they have a collection of original work that will impress. Their song “Bang Your Head” is an interesting one, combining tribal drums and odd synths to form a take on the arena sound. I like how Caked Up puts most of their songs up for free on soundcloud, so be sure to check them out here. Their most recent remix is of “Hot N#gga” by Bobbt Shmurda and uses heavy percussion and whiny trap sounds, resulting in a cool take on the original.
