Wu vs. Beatles and King Tubby

I discovered two Wu remix projects last week. The first is the Wu Vs. the Beatles, in which the Clan's vocals are put over beats made from Beatles songs. It can be downloaded for free from Tea Sea Records. It's pretty good, although it's more rejiggering Beatles samples over beats rather than working a break from a Beatles song. I love the drum sound Ringo gets in songs like "Rain" or "Tax Man," and I wish someone would work those fat drums into a hip hop context.

I also stumbled upon King Tubby Vs. Wu-Tang: Macro Dubplates Vol. 1 at Radio Retaliation. This is Chris Macro's reworking of Wu-Tang rhymes over King Tubby dub songs. It doesn't always work, but when it does it's pretty awesome.

Here's the Wu's "C.R.E.A.M." over Tubby's dub of Horace Andy's "Money Money"
