Free Download: Yasiin Bey & Preservation – The REcstatic

DJ and producer Preservation just released his remixed version of The Ecstatic, the fourth studio album by the emcee we still prefer to call Mos Def. 16 reinterpretations of tracks off one of 2009′s most forward-thinking hip hop albums, including a pre-version of “Casa Bey” titled “Black Fantastic.”

Preview: Mos Def – Roses ft. Georgia Ann Muldrow (Remix)

“Quiet Dog Bite Hard”, “Wahid” & “No Hay Nada Mas” were originally produced by Preservation, so it’s interesting to hear his own new takes four years later. Trade your email address for the remix project over at his website below. Fair deal, right? On a related note, this never gets old.
