Lengthy title, we know. Don’t worry. As always, there’s a reason.
Well, more like a story actually…
If you would, for a brief moment, take a step into our Rager Onions Time Machine (patent pending) and turn the dial back to the last century, circa 1999. If you know anything about Back to the Future and the workings of time travel in general, you just might happen to notice something a little peculiar about the way our flux capacitor works. Much like the TARDIS from every nerd’s favorite Sci-Fi television show, Doctor Who, our time machine not only travels through time, but space as well. As you hear the space-punk themed contraption power up, engage, and rear itself to a lurching halt, you will emerge from the dank chamber in an unusual place (that is, not where you departed from).
You have safely arrived in Reims, France during the famous Boom Bap Hip Hop Festival. Making your way through a gathered crowd of music fans you cannot help but notice the ultra dulcet, hip-hop-influenced beats of this next production duo. In fact, what you’re actually hearing is an original mix to the very same song we have included below by native French producers Hocus Pocus and C2C of 20syl. These two bros have been in the game for quite some time and it would seem that making uncanny hip-hop beats is certainly nothing new to this tandem.
We went crazy for 20syl’s remix of Schoolboy Q (the whole EDM world did) and we hope this next jam will fall in line. Enjoy this reworking to “Bet Dap Goom Bown.”
Yeah, we have no idea what that means either.
