It's hard enough to do a good remix of a famous house track, but to do it using the sounds of a city? That's another challenge entirely.
Yet that's precisely what Lower Mainland duo "I F*cking Hate That" have done. They sampled the sounds of downtown Vancouver for their latest video "Sampled Vancouver, "amplifying and arranging them into a creative remix of Avicii's famous house music track "Levels."
Matt Dennison and Jason Lucas have produced videos and posted them online since at least 2009. Their work covers a variety of topics and genres.
Their latest shows "Levels" being played out using sounds such as sewer covers, the Skytrain, ticket vendors and a half-empty Coke bottle. So far it has gotten over 47,000 views on YouTube.
Just last week they posted "Breaking Bad Halloween," a spoof of the popular TV show. It depicted a Walter White-like character frantically trying to finish a batch of crystal meth on Halloween night while his friend tries to persuade him to go trick-or-treating.
The duo has also created a video titled "How to Cope with NHL Lockout," which showed a Canadian trying to distract himself from the hockey lockout by taking up new sports and hobbies... and failing at it.
