naphtaAfter piquing interest with a Sun Raw remix EP last month, Red Bull Music Academy alum and (apparent) R&B mega-fan Naphta is back with another remix package. This time around, the Polish producer has put forth his oddly slurred take on some of the most critically acclaimed R&B cuts from the last year, drawing from Autre Ne Veut, Shlohmo & Jeremih, and Tinashe. Naphta also draws quite a bit of his sound from regional American staples like Jersey Club and Three 6 Mafia-style, hi hat heavy beat work. The package is highly entertaining, if not spectacular, but few remix packages are at that. Stream two choice cuts from the EP below and download the entire thing here courtesy of Freshmore.

What to say about this one… it’s a mashup of an edit of an edit; in other words, Ryan Hemsworth has done it again. This time, he took Nicolas Jaar‘s remix of Shlohmo‘s staple track “Rained The Whole Time,” and threw in a little (just kidding, it’s a lot) of R. Kelly’sNumber One.” Not all that surprisingly, coming from musical masterminds like these, the combination is quite effective.
