A pair of club bangers from Chicago

One of Chicago’s best kept secrets is the remix/production duo of Paul Anthony & ZXX. While they have separate myspace accounts (and often perform separately), they release music as a team. The two of them keep reminding us that Chicago is still home to some of the hardest-hitting house music being made today. Their fool-proof formula goes something like this: 

 

  1.  Pick the hook from popular, recognizable song
  2. Set the tempo to 127bpm while looping heavy drums, synths, echos and other effects
  3. Repeat step two for eight minutes

Take a listen to the two remixes below. The songs here are “A Milli” (originally by Lil Wayne) and “Hustlin’” (Rick Ross). I know, I know– both of these rap songs are almost painfully overplayed at this point; both have been remixed at least a dozen times. Trust me, they’ve never sounded like this before:
