This mixtape got about a second of buzz and then got buried in the usual daily internet music avalanche. Which is a shame cause it’s the shit, one of my favorite mixtapes of the year, well worth your attention. In some ways it’s the other side of the coin (or old subway token to keep it topical) to Roc Marcino’s much acclaimed Marcberg, with Marcberg bearing the oppressive gray griminess of New York in winter and Clarified Butter reminding of the aggressive pungency of a hot New York summer.
There is a slight irony here as Above The Clouds (maybe my favorite track on there) kinda contradicts the above theory, it’s one of the more introspective tracks on the album. Wright & Exact should balance that out nicely.
Clarified Butter is available now via Itunes
