SR Track of the Day: Bombs Over Baghdad (David Starfire Remix) – Outkast
Outkast’s summer tour begins tomorrow at Coachella, and the past few weeks have seen a number of remixed tracks by prominent artists in celebration of what will surely be an epic comeback for the ages. “Bombs Over Baghdad” is one of my favorite Outkast tracks, so I was anxious to hear the talented David Starfire’s take on it.
Expectations were definitely exceeded, Starfire manages to find the perfect combination of originality and tribute, tastefully infusing trap and glitch features. Middle Eastern-tinged synth plus sax additions and dexterous vocal sampling ride the original track’s memorable chord progression with rage-inducing flair. Starfire’s signature world music aesthetic and sampling style naturally blend with “Bombs Over Baghdad”‘s instantly recognizable chorus. Get your free download, and crank this banger immediately with no regrets. You can catch David Starfire on the west coast and Colorado, and Outkast coming to a festival near you.
