While most of what we cover at Hip To The Game stays within the genre of hip-hop, Vampire Weekend was hard to ignore in 2013 as the indie rock band released their critically acclaimed album “Modern Vampires of the City”. It was a spectacular body of work and worthy of its many accolades, including a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music album. As a New Years Eve gift, Vampire Weekend decided to give a track off the project “Step” the rap treatment with a remix.

With the original “Step” record sampling “Step To My Girl” by the legendary hip-hop group Souls of Mischief, it was apparent that Vampire Weekend was well-versed in the rap genre. So it comes to no surprise that the features on the remix are expertly chosen as Danny Brown, Heems, and Despot all fit within the aesthetic of the record very nicely.
