Phoniks’ ‘Autumn In New York’ Project Gives Classic Rap Tracks A Jazz Makeover

In an hour (1pm EST), we’ll be debuting Houston buzzmaker Anti-Lilly and Maine’s Phoniks’ new collaborative project Stories From The Brass Section. While looking up social media links for the write-up, I came across the producer’s Bandcamp page. And what do you know? Featured at the top is a brand new project that I must have skipped over during the day-to-day madness. Intrigued by the byline “jazz remixes of new york underground hip hop” I pressed play; and just as I expected, I was hooked after the first two tracks.

Featuring jazz’d out remixes of Biggie and Method Man’s “The What,” The Fugees’ “Ready Or Not,” Lord Finesse’s “Hip 2 Da Game” and six others classic underground cuts, Autumn In New York can be streamed below. Take a listen and if you dig the sounds, pick up your copy here.
