Tune in and turn up

Indie label PRMD kicks off February with an homage to ’90s West Coast hip-hop; and, there’s a twist of course. The nine-track album, titled Cold Chilling – Compton, taps up-and-coming artists across several genres to bring their own voice to iconic songs like Snoop Dogg’s “Gin and Juice,” 2pac and Dr. Dre‘s “California Love,” Bone Thugs-n-Harmony’s “Tha Crossroads,” and more.

The resulting renditions run the gamut from sounding indie rock influenced to blues, folk, jazz and more. According to PRMD, the project is the first of a conceptual series that will reimagine the golden age of hip-hop, so stay tuned for more.

Press play to see Stockholm-based Buster Moe’s take on Cypress Hill’s enduring hit “Insane in the Brain,” and purchase the entire album here.

Don’t forget to tell us what you think of the remake.
