Talk Strange Like Bjork: Stressed Out Remixes
from Stressed Out 1996
This trio of remixes is definitely a different take on one of the stronger singles from Beats, Rhymes, and Life. Horns in hip-hop are nothing new, but the way Bjork drops in the fluttering woodwinds is unusual. The short "Married to the Mob Mix" is the most radical interpretation, layering a line from Phife over Bjork's emotive vocals with the drums subtracted from the equation.
"Dandelions Mix" is a step closer to convention, but remains interesting with the industrial soundscape around the 3:45 mark. And finally the "Say Dip" mix is clearly the result of Jive demanding a mainstream remix from Bjork; even so, the sax melody is a nice accompaniment to Faith's "someday we gon' make it" chorus.
