We don’t have to tell you that Houston style beats have been subject to a resurgence in popularity in rap and electronic music in recent years. Back in the day figures such as DJ Screw (R.I.P.) would chop up rap and club tunes to suit their slowed-down, bass-heavy tastes, for that trademark Houston bump.
We’ve put together a little selection of pop songs that do surprisingly well out of the chopped and screwed treatment:
Phil Collins – Another Day In Paradise
Spandau Ballet – I Know This Much Is True
Cyndi Lauper – Time After Time (Boyz II Men Cover)
Rihanna – We Found Love
Phil Collins – Sussuido
The Police – Roxanne
