Meld today's most explosive club music with the eternally fresh lyrical styles of golden age rap stars and whaddya get? A stunning high point in the continuum of hip-hop history. Say what? The new DELICIOUS GUTTER release from Delicious Vinyl.
Aaron LaCrate & Debonair Samir %u2014 top purveyors of the explosive Baltimore club sound %u2014 have stepped to the plate to overhaul classic tracks from Young MC ("Know How") and Masta Ace ("Jeep Ass N#$%"). Not only are Young MC's fast-rap rhymes ideally suited to LaCrate & Samir's hyperactive beats, but Masta Ace's lyrical command "Don't play when it come to my bass" has become a mantra for the dancefloor-savvy duo.
As LaCrate says: "When I was a kid growing up in Baltimore I loved Young MC, and bought two copies of the clear vinyl 12" of Masta Ace 'Jeep Ass'. I would make mixtapes where one side would be up-tempo club jams and the other side would be golden era hip-hop. So now for me and Samir to merge them into one thing is a dream come true. It's the best of two kinds of party music."
Featuring utterly ill artwork that flips the classic Delicious Vinyl logo in the same way that LaCrate & Samir have re-thunk the original music, the vinyl 12" release is destined to be a must-have for DJs and art collectors worldwide. Also available on CD single and digital download, DELICIOUS GUTTER is a classic example of how Delicious Vinyl and today's hottest artists are going back to the future...together.
DELICIOUS GUTTER is taken from the forthcoming full-length RMXXOLOGY, out this Summer.
