“Brand new s### with the blend” as J Dilla would of put it. Well, to be more accurate, it’s a new take on a Dilla classic. Leading player of the UK ‘bass’ scene – Om Unit – has put together a ruff draft of a remix of Jay Dee’s ‘Pause’ featuring fellow Detroit rappers Frank n Dank. Apparently done while on-the-hop (aboard a plane) the remix is a true rough and ready twist on the original. The tracks’ vibe is switched from dark Detroit to a dubbed out sub pumper at home in the gritty east London clubs where Om ply’s his trade. I’m looking forward to a fully mastered version – fingers crossed for a free mp3 download!
