The Up-Turn

I was not the biggest supporter of Katy Perry’s summer-hit Teenage Dream (I am just way too hip for that mainstream music).  Yet even the most anti-mainstream listeners will be hard pressed not to be into what Heems of Das Racist has done with Perry’s song.  Taking Perry’s vocals and going all chopped and screwed on them provides the perfect spacy beat for Heems to rap over and as always Heems provides entertaining and intelligent lyrics.  With all the pitch-shifted vocals the end result sounds like what would happen if Das Racist and Katy Perry recorded their adventures on an acid trip.  I have been listening to this song all day nonstop and am really digging what Heems did with the original song, definitely one of the best remixes I have heard in a while.  Stream and download below.
