Having covered UK group Portico Quartet before, I was very pleased to find this remix by SBTRKT of their track “Line”. Have a listen to the original below and then have a listen to the solid remix by SBTRKT, showing why Aaron Jerome is one of the top electronic music producers out there.
This just makes you want the 90′s all over again. 7L, Esoteric and Wu’s Inspectah Deck collaborate under the name Czarface and bring a fantastic album to us in 2013. At first glance I was expecting a tired and boring album that would make me lament the current state of hip hop and the state of old artists trying to flog a tired horse. Instead what I got was a top notch produced (7L lays down most of the beats) album that you can take from one end to the other and nod your head throughout. Appearances from Action Bronson, Roc Marciano and fellow Wu heads, Cappadonna and Ghostface mean this album stays rocking throughout the 14 tracks. Get this!
