5. Dan The Automator- “Jingle Bells”
Even if you don’t know the name, you’ve surely encountered super producer Dan The Automator’s handwork. He’s cut albums for Kool Keith, Del tha Funky Homosapien, and the Gorillaz, and even had a group of his own in the form of Handsome Boy Modeling School. But when Mr. The Automator isn’t busy producing, it turns out he likes to enjoy a boozy eggnog drink while chopping up a Christmas classic. For the compilation album Christmas Remixed, Dan The Automator put his own unique spin on Dean Martin’s classic cover of “Jingle Bells,” turning the Christmas standard into a chopped and screwed foot tapper.
