This brings me back to my teen years, scary how time flys by so quickly and yet we are still listening to the same tunes and trying to find ways to give them a little modern flavor without destroying the magic taste that it already possesses.
“The Mouse and The Mask” was a sick album to say the least and a collaboration of genius to put it lightly. Danger Mouse and MF Doom, or Danger Doom, gave out hip-hop gold. Methodical lyrics over solid heavy beats and production is something that can definitely be over looked today, Danger Doom has justice. Even a lot of hip-hop has become super pop, not to say that it’s a bad thing, but it’s good to get back to the roots and what I believe to be hip-hop gold.
Opiuo, Australian native, brings his funk flavor to this track in a way that just brings the tempo up perfectly with out ruining it at all. You don’t want to add to much salt and ketchup if you know what I mean, but just the right dash of something different still keeps the original mood at it’s finest. Thank you for this gem dude and taking me back to the good ol’ days!
This is exactly what I needed today, a little old school mixed with some extra sauce. Mondays are never my favorite, and tomorrow is my birthday so I am trying to get myself pumped and let go of any bullshit that shall now be in the past because it is now a new year for me.
Press play on this one and get your mind right, enjoy!
