Video: Marvin Gaye 'Ain't That Peculiar' (Oddisee Remix)
Before the album drops, I wanted to share some remixes & edits I put together of various tracks. I remixed songs by K-Os, Bon Iver, Metronomy & one of my favorite artists of all time, Marvin Gaye. After recording vocals to all of them, I felt it was only right to slap a cover on it & release it. The EP is called, "Odd Renditions" & will be available for FREE download on May 15th. Here's a video to one of the tracks on the EP. The video was done by editing several pieces of footage found of Marvin Gaye performing the song.
Revo Media and Eyerone team up to release his debut solo project, Invitro. This has been a project in the making for the past six months, and it allows the listener to experience through his lyrics the trials and tribulations Eyerone has encountered over the past year. Invitro features production from Malik, Chemist Productions, Don P, and more. Follow Eyerone as he guides you through his world. Powered by Revo Media.
MP3: Acetic f/ King Magnetic - "That's My Word" (prod. Weirdo)
Subject: A rugged song with both artists reflecting on their past struggles with lengthy incarcerations and harsh street upbringings, delivered with razorsharp punchlines and complex rhyme patterns, reminiscent of the emcess of old. The infamous Weirdo brings a savage sample that is similar in comparison to DJ Premier in the golden years, with DJ El Zink Shredding up M.O.P pellas on the hook. This song is an instant classic.
Following on from their massive club smash 'Wine de Best' ft. Busy Signal, Fatman Scoop & Kano still currently a hot fave with DJ's, Orange Hill Productions return with their new single, this time collaborating with dancehall supremo extraordinaire, Vybz Kartel. Continuing to push boundaries with their unique artistic vocal pairings, the dancehall influenced UK rap maestro Sneakbo provides that homegrown flavour on the remix.
