Big Boi and Phantogram Get Funky on ‘Objectum Shalamar’

The rapper’s latest remix samples disco band Shalamar’s 1982 track ‘A Night to Remember’

Big Boi continues to dole out the funk on his new remix series. For this week’s installment of #MashUpMondays, the Dirty South hip-hop pioneer presents “Objectum Shalamar,” a disco makeover to the soulful Phantogram-assisted “Objectum Sexuality” from his 2012 LP, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors

100 Best Albums of the Nineties: Outkast, ‘Aquemini’

This new version blends Sir Lucious Left Foot’s frenetic rhymes and Sarah Barthel’s mousey croon over a glitzy sample of disco band Shalamar’s 1982 track “A Night to Remember.” The remix is even more propulsive than the original, utilizing the sample’s greasy, high-treble guitar riff and plenty of glittery keyboards.

Big Boi’s previous remixes include “CPU 2.0” (which features a Sade sample) and “GossipZilla” (which borrows from Blue Oyster Cult). Fans seeking their Big Boi fix (ahead of the long-awaited, 40-date Outkast reunion) can keep up with the #MashUpMondays series at the rapper’s Soundcloud page.
