From cocky bangers talking smack like “No L’s” to introspective sad pieces like “Long Road Ahead”, DL Down3r has proven many times over that he’s the king, and that whatever he attempts, he does with the utmost care and love that will bring each of his hits to success, no matter what form they take! His most iconic track Suga Boom Boom is definitely no exception. With DL’s level of versatility and talent, Suga Boom Boom is absolutely prime territory for not only chart topping, but remixes. And indeed, it’s had quite a few in the past! One standout remix we want to take another look at today is the PlayMPE chart topping Suga Boom Boom remix from Jack Parry!
We recently published a story on Jack Parry’s father Gavin Parry, so we thought we should report that the apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree. This iconic remix features the intoxicating vocals of DL Down3r’s original that will help you chill and vibe in a whole new way.
It’s no wonder that DL Down3r’s work is so suited to new interpretations like this one, whether they be from his own hand, or from the community his music has fostered. He’s that damn adaptable! But to say the least, one particular remix stands out. And what a whopper of a remix it is! It was overseen by Jack Parry, mixed/mastered by Tom Polce and Chris Garcia, pre-produced by Gabe Rizza, and produced by Damien Reilly. Jack’s unique vision has really helped bring the track to life in a wholly different way, and we’re absolutely here for it. The team has worked hard on adding another feather to Down3r’s cap, and you can see that effort shining clearly through the mesmerising hooks and beats of the timeless banger. Jack Parry’s vision in particular was strong with this new direction, causing the old reliable earworm to inherit a new life along with the remix’s cheerful aesthetic. The plays on this track are at 90K on Spotify and they’re gonna keep climbing! The track has also lent a special kind of magic to our recent ventures into our “mashup” videos!
The original Suga Boom Boom is a melancholy head-nodder, letting you into DL’s vulnerable side with a metaphorical discussion of his experience with illegal drugs. But this particular track adds another element that isn’t typically seen in remixes and covers of this track that tend to take it in a new direction: it remains relaxing. This identity of the track synergised well with the original, for while it was melancholy, it also had a bit of zing to it. It’s impressive to see a remix that is both chill and relaxing, and retains the spicy energy of the original, while keeping it distinct and different from the original – and that is exactly what the Jack Parry remix accomplished. The results speak for themselves, and we wanna congratulate Jack for the successful direction he took this in! When you hear the rest of his catalogue, it’s a given that this remix turned out as well as it did.
Through fierce and funky west coast rap, Down3r shares his prolific work with the rest of the world, and the stage with west coast rap legends such as Coolio, Brown Boy, Jay Tablet, Lil Young, Snoopyblue, Baby Bash, Steel City Hustlers, King Z and DJ Kane to name a few. From powerful messages, lyrical poetry and sharp comments on society, to G-funk and Trap/EDM hype songs, he proves that age and experience is the opposite of a liability in today’s rap game. Suga Boom Boom is the flagship song of his talented repertoire! This remix and the original are both out now on all major online retailers and streaming services, so get ready to buy a new pair of speakers!
