If remixing hip-hop records were a video game, Baauer would be playing on the highest difficulty level. On his latest feature, Soulja, the EDM heavyweight chooses as his source material a Booth-panned Soulja Boy single... from 2008. Inauspicious as Bird Walk may be as a staring point, he manages to create something that's not only listenable but pretty damn dope. The original's minimal, self-produced beat is replaced with a stuttering, bass-heavy rhythm guaranteed to get bodies moving on the dance floor. On the back, the instrumental mutates into a dreamy, aquatic synth groove. In keeping with the video game theme, fans can download this cut, as well as Baauer's previously-released Clang, by visiting his official site and entering the secret code “soulja” into the speak box.
