What's This, A Party?:: Tor - Final Fantasy & Q-Tip Remix

If the Ack thought I would stand idly by while he launched a new section earlier this week (our new hot singles section Matt Dillon's Soul Patch), he was mistaken. We've been thinking of creating a new section for a while to post the remixes we're sent, which are often quite good, but they don't often fit into what we normally do on a daily basis. So, we've created this section, that we'll run occasionally on Saturdays when we've go something good, so you can kick your weekend up a few notches.

The name? Well it comes courtesy of Jeanette Lapaix, mother of hill co-founder Shawn Lapaix, who would utter the phrase any time she'd roll into Shawn's bedroom/dance studio/kung fu movie theatre and there were any more than 2 people present. It became the stuff of legend amongst the HH extended posse, and so what better way to pay tribute than to immortalize it on our moderately successful Canadian music blog? Exactly, there is no better way. As we've mentioned before, Shawn loved Kid N' Play, so a stylin' pic of them also seems like a good idea.

So what are we debuting the section with? Well, it's a good one: a remix of Final Fantasy's The CN Tower Belongs to The Dead that mixes in the vocals from Q-Tip's Work It Out (and yes, I know it's Owen Pallet now, but this song is from his Final Fantasy days). It's done by Montreal producer Tor, who garnered a nice bit of buzz for his Sufjan Stevens/hip hop remix project Illinoize, and he's got another good one on his hands here. Enjoy!
