Chad Hugo's Remix of Little Dragon's "Killing Me"

Remember Chad Hugo? You know, the other guy in The Neptunes? The production team Pharrell Williams was in? Yeah! The other guy!

I always liked Chad Hugo. And while the past year has definitely been the year of Pharrell, every time I heard a song that Pharrell had his hand in (Daft Punk's "Get Lucky", Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines", Dispicable Me 2's "Happy", that hat, the Arby's Tweet), I couldn't help but wonder what Chad Hugo was up to.

We now have a very clear understanding of what Pharrell brought to the table in the Neptunes (or at least what he sounds like without Chad Hugo), so I would be really interested in hearing what Chad Hugo sounds like without Pharrell.

From time to time I would search Google for Chad Hugo but not a whole lot would show up. So imagine my surprise when I ran across this Chad Hugo remix of Little Dragon's "Killing Me"!

Listen below.

When All That Matters

Summer flings are funny things things. They seem like they are going to last forever even though you know the summer is only three months long. For most people, it's over after time moves the summer on.
For the very lucky ones, they find something special that endures.

This is my ode to the summer fling. What happens to the couple? Listen to the songs, and let me know what you hear.
