Benji Boko is a young DJ/Producer from the UK with an impressive back catalogue of remixes that range from his unique take on Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” to a mega hyper version of M.O.P’s “Ante Up”. This time he’s ventured onto 90’s R&B territory and gone straight to the top with an insanely good remix of TLC’s “No Scrubs”. T-Boz, Left Eye and Chilli’s immortal track from 1999 was the 2nd highest selling hit of the year for Hot 100 and remains one of the genre’s most influential pieces. The timeless trio’s soulful vocals carry a forever repeated message of intolerance for guys who still live with their mum and are complimented in this remix by Boko’s stuttering beat anchored with a deep bass line and draped in mellow keys.
Boko’s no stranger to working on music from the R&B songstress realm as he dropped a reworking of Beyoncé’s 2002 effort “Work It Out”. You’d be forgiven for forgetting about the track which featured on the Austin Powers In Goldmember Soundtrack but the recently crafted remix breathes a drum crashing new life into the now post-post disco track. You can enjoy both “No Scrubs” and “Work It Out” by streaming them below.
