We've posted up music mixes and remixes from UK DJ & producer Chris Read in the past here on the website and now, he hit us with his latest joint, a nine track remix EP of music that all consists of music somehow tied into the well known independent Hip-Hop crew from North Carolina, Little Brother.
Chris Read Presents: The Little Brother Show Remix EP features re-works of different tracks by or featuring either MCs Phonte or Big Pooh solo or the entire Little Brother collective.
Ever since putting out the Diary Volume 1.5 remix tape earlier this year, I've been wanting to do another remix tape with a more current feel. Whilst there's been something of a trend for producers remixing entire albums in the past few years, the truth is that there's a very small number of modern hip hop acts who've genuinely inspired me, let alone ones that have published acapella albums.
Little Brother, on the other hand, impress me consistently and are one of the few contemporary hip hop acts who I always check for. So I gathered together the limited acapellas that I have obtained over the years and used them (along with a few instrumental skits) to produce this 9 track remix EP.
Much like Diary Volume 1.5, I've tried to keep the style of beats appropriate to the age the original tracks, although it's all post-2003 material so in truth anything goes. The more recent tracks are a pretty accurate reflection of where my beat making sits right now.
I think it's probably pretty clear from what I've said already, but for the avoidance of doubt, I should probably add that this is not an official Little Brother mixtape or release.
It was born simply out of my search for some quality vocals to put together a coherent sounding EP and perhaps more importantly my being a fan of Little Brother.
I sincerely hope it's received that way.
