By most estimations, last months Sinjin Hawke + Gangsta Boo collaboration, “Yea Hoe”, was a resounding success, providing the former with an established, well-respected MC and the latter with some of the best club collaboration the world over. That being said, I don’t think anyone is mad that we’ve received an alternate/remix version of the song in the form of he “Devils Daughter Mix”. Whereas the original was all braggadocious horn work and Greek Tragedy wails, the new mix strips all of that away (for portions of the song), relying on reverberating, over-the-top synth drums and strapping hi hats. If the original was a club track, then this is a club track. It’s hard to choose between the two, but considering that both are free, expect to hear both in abundance over the coming weeks and months. Stream/download below and catch the original mix after the jump.

It has been a long while since the last edition of Sounds From The Astral Plane, but with tunes piling up in the inbox, it feels like the right time to bring it back. Although we only started this whole blog deal in January, I feel it’s safe to say that 2012 has been one of the most exciting music years in recent memory. We attempt to cover all of the music we love, but sometimes things slip through the cracks. We’re human after all. Every week (or so), you’ll find the originals, remixes and DJ mixes that we missed. This will also be a space to see how y’all respond to new artists so don’t hesitate to send over your/your friend’s latest and greatest. At this point, the scope of Sounds From The Astral Plane is wide open so you’ll find anything and everything in this space. This week, we have everything from Formes’ incandescent take on psych rock to Dubbel Dutch’s dancehall stylings. As always, any and all feedback would be much appreciated! Hit the jump for the full list…
