Notorious B.I.G. & The XX

tantalizing tunes conceived through unlikely duo 

Today's special: The XX

After reviewing the album I was over at [WAWSTSF] and found this awesome piece of mashed up pie. Wait What [yes, the name of the musician who mixed these artist] took a rather foolish inspiring question "What would "Juicy" sound like over "VCR"? as the basis of the project in which he becomes a surrogate baby mama for the XX and B.I.G. Even though Biggie has been utilized in a mash-up by almost any artist who combines music, this one still offers stints of syncopated British Alt/Electro Biggie. Here is a snippet from the promotion information:
The marriage, if you can call it that -- and really, you can't, given that it's about 43 minutes long, so he's more aiming for a really solid connection between two people just trying to feel something -- is admittedly unorthodox.Biggie's music can make anyone at the club feel like they're a rapper, and gets a dance floor going at most any party, whereas The xx are mostly consumed in iPod earbuds on public transit, sitting in isolation at home, or driving alone -- in many ways, the combination of the two is the extrovert meets the introvert.
Wait What's website has the album streaming through soundcloud.

Check out Wait What's rendition of "Basic Space" and "Hypnotize."

Check out a video for the "Juicy," "VCR" song "Juicy-r" after the jump.
