While Sol Republic is making a pretty damn grandiose claim, this list is nuts. Scroll down to the tall dudes with glasses section and you’ll find Them Jeans, Linus (aka the tall dude with glasses from Jokers of the Scene), and myself.
It took a minute, but I FINALLY got this remix of John Legend’s take on Adele’s monster hit polished up just hours before heading to the airport for my European jaunt. (A rougher version is on the promo mix I put up for the trip over here.) Thanks to the Yum Yum guys in Germany for providing the inspiration, Eugene Tamborine for the additional keys, and Icewater for his deft engineering hand. I hope you enjoy!
The 17th of April 2011 will go down in history as the day my first OFFICIAL remix dropped. (*applause, confetti dropping from the sky*) Well over a year ago, Ali B of Air Recordings reached out to me about doing a remix for one of the tracks on DJ Love’s album. Turns out that myself, A-Skillz, Nick Thayer, and Fort Knox Five all thought “Zigga Zigga” featuring Geechi Suede of Camp Lo was the joint that needed to be touched. A year later and here we are.
Check the Soundcloud player below to hear the original and all the remixes, go to Juno to buy it (where you can find the release still sitting in the top 10 of their best sellers chart), and come out to Fabric in London on Friday, May 27th to hear me rocking with Ali B, Fort Knox Five & A-Skillz.
Over at the 11 Inch Records site, I just posted a crap-ton of links to press that Donwill & The Kickrums have garnered for their recent releases. Go check them over here.
I’m not really one for youtube-ing rap videos for hours on end, but, while running around with Crooked, Moma, and the gang to hear all that NYC had to offer on a rainy Tuesday night, hearing Iron Lyon rip apart an empty overflow room at Greenhouse last night reminded me what a great song & video this is. I don’t know that anyone has ever done a better job at poking fun at rap’s conventions. Certainly not with a feature from Raphael Saadiq.
