The New Zealand Hiphop group Soul Chef just dropped the remixed EP of their dope album Good Vibes. They recruited some heavyweight producers to revamp their tracks. Soul Square, out of France, starts the EP with a pumpin jazzy vibe and then continues with Flofilz provided a more mellow sound. Soul Chef always comes correct with their lyrics and delivery, the new productions just gives you another set of tracks to bob your head to.
I hate to say it but if your production caters to the golden era sound, you almost gain this instant credibility and recognition. It is like you have this refined and elevated ear that the heads appreciate. The german beatmaker Je$u$ has this signature sound golden era style but he doesn’t need the instant recognition. Once your hear his production, you realize this guy is the real deal. Je$u$’s remixes are on point, it sounds so natural that you think the artist was present in the studio with him. One of my favorite remixes of his is Afu Ra’s Whirlwind Thru Cities, the mellow beat has pure jazziness exuding out. Check out his beat tapes as well, highly recommended!
