Gensu Dean, the SP-1200 assassin, is at it again with a new 45 for vinyl heads that pairs the ultimate fast flow track “Ramesses feat. 7evenThirty & Homeboy Sandman”, with a brand new joint titled “Wantchu” featuring the UK-based songbird Olivier Daysoul.
“Wantchu” is not what you would expect from a producer touted for bringing that grimy flavor of 90’s rap back. Instead, Dean proves he can smooth things out just as quickly as he can make them rugged. The Imperial blesses Olivier Daysoul with a silky smooth canvas with just enough head-nod flavor to tie it all together. On his end, Mr. Daysoul lays a thick, syrupy ode to the conflicting feelings of infatuation. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself listening to this one on loop for a while.
Strictly for the collectors, this 45 will go as quickly as it came.

Sureshot Symphony Solution: New Album + Ohmega Watts Track
Courtesy Nature Sounds.
As one half of the production duo Sharpshooters, DJ Sureshot helped bridge the gap between hip-hop and jazz in the early days of what would come to be known as acid jazz. The duo’s classic 1996 debut Choked Up was a mixture of live instruments and sample-heavy boom bap that helped put their hometown of Seattle on the hip-hop map. Sureshot’s crate-digging expertise later led him to release some popular break records and reissues, and in recent years he’s become active in the vibrant music scene of the city he now calls home, San Francisco. Taking the next step in his own musical evolution, DJ Sureshot is now proud to present his highly anticipated new project, the Symphony Symphony Solution. After an intro EP earlier this year, the debut SSS full-length Elegant Aggression is now set to hit physical and digital stores on September 25th, 2012.
Blending hard-hitting hip hop beats seemlessly with lush live jazz-rock instrumentation, the Sureshot Symphony Solution is an eclectic mix of musical styles with a heavy emphasis on experimentation. "The whole project is psychedelic-influenced," explains Surehot. "Whether it's a soul song, a rap song, or a Reggae track, it's all based on that late 60s, early 70s psychedelic sound." With vocalists ranging from underground hip-hop stalwart Ohmega Watts to neo-soul favorite Coultrain to Reggae crooner Noel Ellis to Northern Soul legend The Mighty Pope, Sureshot has crafted a project that defies typical genre boundaries. "I've been exposed to a lot of music over the years," he says. "I'm constantly learning, constantly evolving, constantly trying to take chances and push myself." While the music may be diverse, it's unified by Sureshot's boom-bap mentality. "All my music has a hard edge to it," he explains. "Even if it has the feel of an old library record or soundtrack, it still has that hard hip-hop beat behind it. That's why I called it Elegant Aggression."
