Max Tannone’s new remix project has just hit the streets. This time it’s a follow up to his brilliant mash-up album Mos Dub released earlier this year.
The new album – Dub Kweli – pairs the lyrics of acclaimed hip-hop artist Talib Kweli with the sound of rough dub from the 70’s and 80’s.
There are plenty of interesting rhythms here, and several seem like odd choices. Not many of them are well known, like Jah Marcus Words. Nevertheless, the rhythms are flawless.
Among the better know include Stop That Train, a masterpiece originally produced by Derrick Harriot, or Marcus Garvey by Burning Spear.
Talib Kweli is one of the most skilled rappers ever and his voice suits these rock hard rhythms perfectly. If you listened to Mos Dub as much as I did, then you must have Dub Kweli as well. Download for free here.
