London-based UK ‘funky’ collective Funkystepz are renowned for their first-class edits of Top 40 hip-hop and R&B tracks but this bass edit of 2 Chainz‘ schlocky “Birthday Song” really ups the ante. Producers Renay and Stimpy speed up the tempo, sprinkle in some house piano and siren bleeps for good measure. The result is an evocative party anthem that outdoes the trashy original in every possible way. It will grow on you, trust me.
Download here along with an equally outstanding edit of Missy Elliot‘s “9th Inning.”
