Apparently, K-Salaam & Beatnick aren’t satisfied with the original version of the song 6th Sense, from Common’s 2000 album, Like Water for Chocolate. In fact, they think they can do better. In their newly-released remix of the track, they swap the rather sparse Primo beat for one with a whole lot more flavor. Gone are the dirty piano samples and throwback drum loop, replaced by wailing guitars, electro beeps, funky wah bass, and some cleaned-up percussion. The end result is far more crowded, upbeat, and festive than the original. Thankfully, the two Minneapolis producers leave the vocals untouched, staying true to the words that made the song a classic in the first place. For more re-do’s of Common’s greatest hits, check out K-Salaam’s & Beatnick’s always growing series, Common Remixed.
