House Music, It's La Cosa Nostra

HYPER CRUSH!

California Gurls

It’s no secret that I am a New York City boy, which means I like my girls spoiled, brunette, and Jewish,

However, I had the pleasure of meeting a bonafide California girl this weekend, and I must admit they are rather pleasant.

Here is a gang of California Gurls remixes.

1) California Gurls (Armand Van Helden Remix)

I’m a fan of the sound permeating Armand’s tracks lately. It is very French House, very disco-centric. This has to be my favorite of all of the remixes.

2) California Gurls (Algeronics Remix)

This one has a nice bouncey euro touch to it, and it builds up nicely. It maintains a good amount of singalongability, too, which is something Armand’s remix is devoid of.

3) California Gurls (HYPER CRUSH Remix)

It’s HYPER CRUSH! So you know that you are going to get their presence in every aspect of the track, but this track is hyphy as fuck. A nice build-up at the 2:00 mark will def have all of the California Gurls shaking in their Daisy Dukes.

4) California Gurls (Barletta Remix)

Barletta is not fucking around, as the track jumps right into to first verse. Of all the remixes though, this track keeps the track for the most part intact, making it the most singalongable. The Smokey Sample also at the 1:20 mark is a nice little touch too for all the Friday fans.

5) California Gurls (DallasK Remix)

To me, this was the weakest of the remixes. The levels seemed off. It has the right idea, but to me the vocals are much higher than the instrumental, which seems to drown out the track. Katy comes in at 1:48 to a stripped-down beat, providing a nice effect, but like I said, I need that beat higher.
