Early/rough MOP remix from yours truly, please enjoy..
MOP - g-building (boom baptist remix)
a wall-shaking remix of some grimy MOP track provided by one of austin’s most dynamic beatmakers, boom baptist. his tag of ‘roland juno synth off-kilter wonky hip-hop remix’ is pretty much right on point. if you took out the vocals, this would presumably sound like the sensation of being an NES character during an earthquake, with boulders falling all around you and some strategy necessary to navigate whatever obstacle course is blocking off your escape route; a frantic, complex, multi-dimensional vision, clouded by pixelation, with chords that reek of intangible but imminent danger…and then you go ahead and throw some guys imitating rounds of automatic gunfire on top, and there’s your formula for futuristic hip-hop chaos.
boom baptist (of applied pressure, exploded drawing, etc.) was one of the many local dj’s who opened up for eliot lipp last night, as is the case with pretty much every big name that stops in town on their national tours. he’ll also be opening up for pete rock next week, a show i’m quietly ecstatic about right now. i got a 4-minute video of him performing last night, which i’ll put on here in a bit; actually, i probably have around five recordings of him shaking the place up at various electronic shindigs over the last bunch of months, so it’ll be good to finally start attending to those. in the meantime, as i sit here and get my shit together, here’s a post from a few months ago featuring james yancey’s ‘one can win' remix, for all my fellow dillaheads out there.
