Ever wondered how A Tribe Called Quest’s “Midnight” sounds over DJ Shadow’s “Midnight In A Perfect World”? Probably not. But now you know, thanks to this Midnight Marauders Revisited EP by London-based DJ/producer Jim Sharp.
The EP is full of fun and witty Tribe references. “Midnight” and “Midnight In A Perfect World” don’t just have the nighttime in common. The match-up also brings together Kamaal The Abstract with Shadow’s use of “The Human Abstract” by David Axelrod. Or think of giving “We Can Get Down” a bigger boom-bap treatment, or the “come back” vocals on “The Chase (Jim Sharp’s Part 3 feat Biz)” subtly hinting The Ummah’s remix of “Sometimes” by Brand New Heavies.
These are original takes that make this Midnight Marauders Revisited EP more than just a tribute or remix project. Stream the release in full, or download the EP for free or Name Your Price:
