Purify Beats – “Remixes Felt III”

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010
Share Button

Purify Beats tackles some heavy duty work reinterpreting Aesop Rock’s production power. And emerges victorious. He remixed Bazooka Tooth a few years ago and I liked it immensely. It was sparse next to the dense sample barrage of the original and let Ace Rizzlenator showcase his ‘WTF’ worldview.

Buy it hear or hear.

Hail Mary Mallon Teaser

I’m not keen on sucking famous indie rapper cock, but this blip of a sneak peek into the world of Hail Mary Mallon is true genius. HMM is the creation of Aesop Rock and Rob Sonic. I own everything Rob Sonic’s contributed to from compilations to albums and so on. His lack of notoriety is more than baffling as he aptly demonstrates his ability to go toe-to-toe with Aes Face (proof here). And while Aesop Rock isn’t a personal favorite, he’s obviously one of the most capable cats inside of the indiesphere. As the enthusiasm gap widens between artists and fans, it is bizarre and intentional efforts like this promo piece that still stir a flicker of imagination and provide an incentive to follow the project through to realization (translation: Hopefully, if it is a good album, you buy the shit and and play it your iPod).

How To Ruin A Pretty Good Album

Not being familiar with Felt’s previous efforts I found last year’s Felt 3: A Tribute to Rosie Perez to be some wild shit. Primarily due to the power-production (nh) of Aesop Rock. Unfortunately nothing remains pure forever and the cum stain they call Grieves touched tips with Budo and this is the result. Start paying that dude in sandwiches.
