Earlier this year, Cousin Stizz broke down the DopeHouse doors with his smash single, “No Bells.” Since then, the Boston native has been a regular around these parts with the release of his Suffolk County mixtape, a video for “Dirty Bands,” and a starring role in the latest installment of our A Day In The Life series. It’s been pretty awesome to witness dude’s organic rise in the game, and today marks another step in his ascension.
Like us, Chicago’s Thelonious Martin has been a fan of Stizz ever since “No Bells” first lit up his speakers this summer, and today, he’s decided to put his twist on the record.
“I really love giving my own spin to certain records, it’s almost like challenging myself to see if I can match the quality of the original record and keep the integrity of the record without it being corny,” Martin told Complex. DumDrumz killed the original ‘No Bells’ joint so it was an honor to get Stizz blessing to remix a record I think will be a hit at every festival and even months after the mixtape dropped can still pick up have a cult following.”
With Carter Lang on the 808’s, Martin’s “No Bells (Remix)” can be heard below. Check it out and, if you haven’t already, pick up his Wünderkid LP – easily one of my favorite projects of the year.
