French reggae producer Mato has made a name for himself by giving Kingston-style makeovers to many hip-hop pop hits. Here Stix have rounded up the latest batch of reworks featuring, amongst others, "Suit & Tie" by Justin Timberlake, "Happy" by Pharrell Williams, "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea, "Rehab" by Amy Winehouse and, clearly not getting the memo, "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke.
Homework. What's left to say about Daft Punk's monumental 1997 debut album that hasn't already been said? It's an LP that everybody loves even if some think it's their best work and others think it was only a hint of the really good stuff to follow. Well Mato has something more to say on the matter, going so far as to rework the whole shebang in a dub reggae style. It's a brave move, but guess what? It totally works, particularly on the spacey "Revolution 909" and the honey vocal-led "Around The World".
