Bixel Boys – Ride [Free Download]
LA’s own Bixel Boys have been steadily gaining traction both in their hometown and throughout the blogosphere for the last year or so, but with reworks like their latest “Ride,” the road to success won’t take too much longer for these two. “Ride” is an interpretation of Ciara’s highly suggestive R&B track (you might remember the video), but the boys truly make it their own. It’s flush with refreshing production elements — a grinding electro breakdown, creative sampling of Ciara’s chorus, juiced up synth work — making it a sure fire dance floor spark plug. If I heard this in a sweaty basement house party at 3am, I’d probably have to collect my jaw off the floor.
