Midas Touch - Remix Tape Vol. 1

Midas Touch is a DJ/producer from Montreal who splits the difference between the sped-up samples of early Kanye and the synth work of early Neptunes. He's released a 2 CD remixtape for free, and while the thing overall is kind of uneven, when he's on its a fucking homerun, like the baby's-ass smooth remix of the Clipse above. If you dig, he's got an American Gangster remix album coming out soon which you can preview here, featuring probably the best version of "Blue Magic" I've heard.
