New Orleanian producer/deejay Quickie Mart is fast getting famous for his furious dubstep remixes as much as his three mixtapes' worth of production for NYC rapper Gotham Green (see the Haze Diaries trilogy featuring Freddie Gibbs, Planet Asia and more). On the heels of his popular Gibbs-approved dubstep remix of "National Anthem", Quickie presents his remix of "Damn", the latest from NYC songstress Shyvonne, a former Estelle backup singer now stepping out on her own. "Damn" started out as just a word Shyvonne accidentally uttered during a recording session. Popular Fools Gold Records deejay/producer Kingdom then made that word into the infectious beat that gave birth to "Damn!" Shyvonne and Quickie linked up at this year's SXSW festival in Austin, TX and the "Damn" remix is the face-melting result.
"It's a classic song about exactly what the hook states, love lost," says Kottonmouth Kings frontman The Dirtball. "Love is an emotion that most all humans deal with on all levels, including the loss of. A large part of the hook not only focuses on the love lost, but bucking up after it occurs, and dealing with it. It's more about the standing back up and becoming strong on your own. In this lifetime, we love, we win, and we lose -- not always in that order. Of all the emotions we go through as people, love is the most intense and hard to understand, so hopefully this song can smack ya back to reality, and become your comeback battle song!"
Kottonmouth Kings will embark on the Welcome To Stonetown Tour throughout July and August. The tour is set to bring a special evening with the Kottonmouth Kings to each town as the group performs all the classic tracks fans have grown to love, as well as new tracks from their upcoming album. Each tour date will also feature special solo performances by Dirtball, Johnny Richter, Kingspade, DJ Bobby B and D-Loc.
