THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL: ‘The Day Everything Turned Green’ (90s Rap Remixes Part 4) (2014) Free download

The Day Everything Turned Green Scarlet PimpernelI remember a day everything turned green but I think that was quite a bit to do with that brie I ate that was past its sell-by date. Ask The Scarlet Pimpernel about The Day Everything Turned Green however and he’ll tell you that it’s the fourth and final installment in his epic mission to rescue 90s rap classics from their original 90s beats and deliver them to brand new 90s-ish beats. Presumably so he can pretend he got asked to remix said classics back in the day. He didn’t of course, but listening to these you can’t really argue against his having caught one of the authentic sonic flavas of his decade of stylistic choice. The light, jazzy feel of Kool G Rap’s original Ill Street Blues now becomes brethren to the brooding menace of Dead Prez’s Hip-Hop, the light jazzy feel of Das EFX’s original Microphone Master now becomes brethren to the brooding menace of early Wu-Tang and the brooding menace of OC’s original Time’s Up becomes – er – brethren to the brooding menace of OC’s original Time’s Up. You may see a pattern emerging there. Perhaps it was the green he smoked to facilitate production. As with the original cuts, this drop’s all about Time’s Up. Cop ’em below (plus the instros) while you can – this is a limited free download…
