This is a little collection of some of the sample-free remixes I produced that were released over the past year. (ALL of these are official remixes by the way) J57.It's been an honor working with everyone on the project from artists I grew up listening to like Pharoahe Monch, Cage, DJ JS-1 and Murs, to this generation's greats like Torae, Fashawn, Choosey and of course BBAS brethren; Akie Bermiss.
The newest signee from Mello Music Group, Red Pill's debut full length album is finally here. The Detroit native has been described as "unflinchingly grim" and "hilariously self-deprecating." The new album, Look What This World Did To Us, is an introspective journey, revealing intimate details through unabashed honesty and satirical absurdity. Self-analysis and loathing may come through initially, but what truly impresses about Red Pill is the talent and control of a veteran rhymer.
For Oddisee, “The Good Fight” is about living fully as a musician without succumbing to the traps of hedonism, avarice, and materialism. It’s music that yields an intangible feeling: the sacral sound of an organ whine, brass horns, or a cymbal crash. It’s a meditation on our capacity to love and the bonds binding us together. It’s our ambition and greed warring with our sense of propriety - a list of paradoxes we all face when living and striving.
