Erykah Badu changed the Soul music game in 1997 when she hit the scene with “On & On”. Fellow Texans PICNICTYME and Sober, known collectively as Booty Fade, give the song a bit of a facelift with their remix. Still smooth like the original, but definitely a departure from Bootyfade’s normally hard and uptempo stylings. Word on the street is they’re working on a debut EP that should be out soon! Stream and download below and while you are here we rounded up 5 more excellent Erykah Badu remixes by Melo-X, Freddie Joachim, EZRAKH, DJ Kiva, Boody & Le1f.
