Just yesterday we featured the new video for "Yes We Can," a mash-up of a Barack Obama speech with vocals provided by a host of performers. I have to admit, the song didn't really move me upon first listen. I loved the concept, but it wasn't exactly my cup of chai. But then I came across this remix by Bay Area producer and DJ, Carlos "Casamena" Mena, and it took the song to a whole 'notha level.
Casamena flipped "Yes We Can" and put a house beat behind it, but if that wasn't enough he also mixed in some of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have A Dream Speech." Bangin'. I don't know about anyone else, but this joint right here makes me want to "Barack my body" all the way down to the polls.
