Remixing classic tracks is a daring thing to do as producer. The aesthetics and value of classics such as Mos Def’s Ms. Fat Booty are so high to listeners, that it’s hard to come close to that feeling with a modern day remix. Only some accomplish, with Kixnare and Freddie Joachim as fair examples according to us. It seems like we can add j23 to that list now.
The producer and We’ve Got The Jazz-affiliate laid his hands on Ms. Fat Booty and it worked out really damn well! A nice soulful touch that fuses perfectly with Yasiin’s nasal voice. This remix will appear on Fugitive Minds, an upcoming collaborative beat tape by j23 and his partner in crime Maud-Dib. Unfortunately we can’t find any info on lastmentioned, but head over to j23’s Tumblr page for a few more beats related to Fugivite Minds.
