SKILLS & VARIETY: Cadillacs & Dinosaurs (2012) video + EP news

Rating: ★★★★★
Here you are, have some of this – the new video from ‘does what it says on the tin’ emcee Skills & Variety who’s teamed up with Destiny Collective producer Brandon Metcalf for the title track off the forthcoming Cadillacs & Dinosaurs EP. Did someone say golden era? I think so – not that these two could have been much more than a twinkle when that all happened though, be assured, they make sure you get musically paid in full. Not so much bringing ’88 back as bringing 1990 back, Skills & Variety (a.k.a MC SAV) drops verbals like a veteran over a De La/ Dream Warriors fat break, big horns, tinkly piano, vocal samples and scratches…you catch my drift.

Cadillacs & Dinosaurs drops in the summer somewhere around July and promises to lift samples from anywhere and everywhere including jazz, reggae and rock with Metcalf producing the whole thing which, on the evidence of this video, is excellent news. And you thought it was just Serge Severe who rocked it like that in the Pacific Northwest…
