The Rub – The Rub: Remixed (FreEP)

blame it on Shake August 1, 2013

A after releasing their self-titled EP, DJ Eleven and DJ Ayres enlist a handful of their favorite producers to remix each track. Inspired by their Brooklyn parties, the remix project features an eclectic mix of boom bap, EDM and mellow vibes.

Marco Polo brings a 90s rap aesthetic to “Feel You,” enlisting Lil Fame from M.O.P. to add some Brooklyn grime to complement Misun’s smoky singing. German dancehall dons, So Shifty, lift the Natalie Storm feature “Dutty Gyal” to high energy carnival Soca levels, while XXXChange (T&A) keeps the electro feel of the original track but raves it out. Oakland’s Trackademicks (Fools Gold) smooths things out with his “Black & White” remix, delivering notes of 80s R&B and Bay slaps. Michna’s (Ghostly International) “At Night” remix is deep and lo-fi, like Afrika Bambaata scoring a Michael Mann film.
