MP3: Fatal Lucciauno - "Big Bro (Action Jackson Remix)"
Courtesy Audible Treats.
Seattle's Fatal Lucciauno has released not one but two noteworthy projects this year. First came his collaborative EP with Jake One, The Message, a free project that was followed by the retail release of his official sophomore LP, Respect. As new fans continue to pick up on both releases, Fatal is busy keeping the music flowing, with a collection of new tracks and remixes, the latest being today's remix for album single "Big Bro."
he remix is handled by Action Jackson, one-half of the electro-soul duo Fly Moon Royalty that share a label, Sportn' Life Records, with Lucciauno. In addition to being label mates, Fatal's been anxious to work with Action Jackson, whose music he's a personal fan of. "He's one hell of a producer," remarks Fatal. "It was a no-brainer."
Musically, for Lucciauno and Jackson, it was about "finding the right fit, but something that would still contrast against the original," and Action Jackson hit the nail on the head. While the original, produced by Kuddie Fresh, was a staggered and frenetic, synth- and guitar-laden affair, Action Jackson's remix slows things down, delivering a much more somber vibe, a perfect fit for Fatal's honestly raw lyrics, as he raps, "For this life I live, I'll probably get three strikes/ Little ni**as peddle bikes/ Peddle goods/ Peddle rocks through your block/ Through your hood."
On May 22nd, Casual, one of the most revered lyricists from the Hieroglyphics crew, will release his latest album, He Still Think He Raw. The album, a follow up of sorts to Casual's He Think He Raw album released in 2001, will be produced entirely by DJ Fresh & The Whole Shabang, and to celebrate the announcement, Casual is excited to release the album's Aris Jerome-directed debut video, "Tears."
