Salva "That Girl (Pharrell feat. Snoop Dogg Cover)"
LA beat hub Friends of Friends has unveiled another installment of its Pop Massacre compilation series, in which beat- and bass-oriented producers rework a pop song of their choice. The 15-track second volume includes efforts from a range of artists, including Shlohmo, LOL Boys, Jonwayne, Mexicans with Guns, Chico Mann, Devonwho, and others, and finds the likes of everyone from The Beatles to Rihanna to Waka Flocka Flame getting the remix treatment. The compilation, available for free download here, features plenty of gems, but this track from LA-based producer (and former Bubblin' subject) Salva is a definite highlight. Tackling the 2006 Pharrell and Snoop Dogg collaboration "That Girl," Salva transforms the laid-back summertime hip-hop of the original into a hyperactive juke tune full of sped-up lyrical snippets and intense synth stabs.
