A TRIBE CALLED QUEST: Bonita Applebum (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Remix) (2016) Free download

bonita-applebum-rhythm-scholar-remixRhythm Scholar works his magic on yet another hip-hop cut, indeed – yet another ATCQ cut – in this case his remix of Phife, Tip and co’s 1990 homage to the high-school fox of the title, Bonita Applebum. The vox and that sitar riff are all present and correct and the break is similar to the original albeit with more layers. After that though we’re off to the land of 80s soul with sparse piano tinkles, synth bass and moody horns – you know – the sort of thing redolent of t-shirts under pastel suits with the sleeves rolled up, loafers with no socks…you get the picture. I’m calling it Miami Phife. Cop it below…
