It’s no secret that as of late, dance music and hip-hop are becoming more and more intertwined. The question is, who’s doing it right?
The latest Dr. Fresch track You’re My Obsession exemplifies tasteful G-house, a relatively new genre short for “gangster house.” In the span of one 4:11 song, he not only mashes Animotion’s Obsession with Nate Dogg’s I Got Love, he also adds a personal touch by remixing both. Animotion’s groovy, feel-good melody combined with Nate Dogg’s distinctive G-funk rapping style somehow creates the most satisfying of musical paradoxes. Add Dr. Fresch’s smooth, steady bassline and what is the product? One of the freshest tracks in the game… pun intended.
In the track’s SoundCloud description, Fresch reveals that he was inspired to incorporate Obsession as he was playing Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. As for the motivation behind I Got Love, one can only assume that he intended to pay homage to the legend that was Nate Dogg. For those of you digging this conglomerate of sorts, you can snatch it for free via Dr. Fresch’s SoundCloud now!
When Fresch isn’t busy producing innovative tunes, he also spins as a Dim Mak Records resident DJ, works as Prep School Recordings’ CEO, and opens for huge acts such as Steve Aoki, Diplo, and Clockwork. With so many successes already under his belt, Dr. Fresch is definitely a name to watch for in the upcoming year.
