Fresh off the heels of his viral sensation “Ballin’ Oates,” which was dubbed “The Greatest Mixtape Ever” by Philadelphia Magazine, The Melker Project is back with “Red Hot Trilli Peppers.” On this epic offering, The Melker Project mixes six Red Hot Chili Peppers classics with the likes of Future, 2 Chainz, Dr. Dre, Tupac and everyone in between.
His 5th EP focusing on a single classic artist, Red Hot Trilli Peppers was a formidable project. “I’ve been listening to the Chili Peppers since I was in middle school, and have always wanted to remix their songs- they’re the sh#t. The breadth of their catalogue is astounding, so it was tough to choose the perfect tracks.” Melker says. The first track off of the project is “Bone Thugs & Chili Peppers (Otherside)” which is being premiered exclusively on BroBible. The track features a complete, house and crunk infused reworking of “Otherside” complimented by the epic vocals from “Thuggish Ruggish Bone.”
The entire six-track project , as well as the official t-shirt, is premiering on Uproxx on March 12th – and the official release party is that night at SXSW. The event features a live set by The Melker Project, as well as performances by Snoop Dogg, Sage The Gemini and more. Red Hot Trilli Peppers will be available for free download on The Melker Project’s Facebook page.
