Exclusive: The Roots – Get Busy (DJ Devastate Remix)

DJ Devastate from Sweden is one of the freshest producers from Northern Europe if you ask us. So we’re glad he reached out to us to release a brand new unofficial remix in affiliation with The Find. After his brilliant tribute remix of Amy Winehouse, he now worked his magic on ‘Get Busy’ by The Roots.

The original track is a banger with hard-hitting drums by ?uestlove, subtle electronic influences in the beat and a vocal sample off Joeski Love’s ‘Pee-Wee’s Dance’ from 1986 in the chorus, scratched by DJ Jazzy Jeff. DJ Devastate reworked this song into a complete new vibe, but still matching the raw lyrics by Black Thought, Dice Raw and Peedi Peedi.

A floating dreamy beat complements the hard drums with the addition of new samples to recreate the hook, no doubt inspired by DJ Premier’s scratch-only choruses consisting entirely of multiple vocal samples. “You know the legendary Roots crew!” Download this unofficial remix below for free and check out DJ Devastate for more.
