The ever mysterious Burial is back with a remix of Goldie’s legendary 90s Drum & Bass banger, ‘Inner City Life’. The remix was first mentioned in a 2015 BBC interview between Goldie and Gilles Peterson, which prompted a wave of excitement from fans and calls for the remix to be revealed. The track was recently released through Goldie’s London-based label Metalheadz.
Burial’s take on the DnB classic has clearly been an opinion splitter, perhaps because the producer usually applies a very distinct and unique production style to his works, something that doesn’t shine through as much here.
Whichever version it is you prefer, Burial’s break-neck remix is sure to go hard on dancefloors across the globe.
Take a listen!
2.) Tom Misch & Novelist
This tag-team has come as a surprise to many, what with Novelist rising through the ranks of Grime, spitting bars on some more left-field offerings from producer Mumdance, and even recently partnering with Chase & Status. Novelist rarely strays from his Grime roots either, so this really is out the blue.
Tom Misch on the other hand has made a name for himself as a Neo Soul musician-cum-producer, putting his twist on a fusion of genres like Hip Hop, Jazz, Soul and Funk. That said, the collaboration between these two very different musicians has definitely paid off.
The track is part of Misch’s fresh-off-the-plate album ‘5 Day Mischon’, a project where Misch created 5 tracks in just 5 days.
3.) Loud Lord
Loud Lord is a producer from Chicago, Illinois. The 24 year-old has a penchant for dark and woozy trap beats, and likes using nostalgic video game samples and soundbites from viral videos on the internet.
Loud Lord’s style is deeply influenced by 90s underground Hip Hop and artists using chopped & screwed production techniques.
His track ‘Ascension’, from the mixtape Kush Crazy 2, is a slow and steady track that mixes ghostly chopped up samples, plenty of reverb and a HARD beat.
4.) J Dilla
J Dilla, the late and legendary 90s Hip Hop producer, has made so many beats that he’s managed to release a handful of albums and beat-tapes posthumously.
His latest release, ‘Motor City’, contains nineteen new and previously un-released tracks for your listening pleasure, plus a mix from J-Rocc. As usual the beats are sample-heavy and remain true to Dilla’s style.
Any new Dilla is always welcome here!
Not quite fresh off the plate, but still warm. Here’s one of the latest releases from Bastard Jazz Records.
