THE REAL LIVE SHOW (feat. SADAT X): Grind (Freqnik & WDRE remix)(2013)

Rating: ★★★★★ Ah – that’s the joint! NYC rappers The Real Live Show get former Brand Nubian Sadat X on the flex for the hook of new track Grind from the Grind EP. Nickodemus’s original beat is a faster, darker number displaying clear Eastern-influences but what you really want to be checking out is the remix from NY production crew Freqnik & WDRE. With this, our heroes rep the classic funky 90s boom-bap sound by slightly slowing the bpms and dropping beats fat and funky like a pair of crate-digging junkies. Which they pretty much are, in fact.
