EYRST Records head and producer Neill Von Tally blesses the boards for a stunning remix of UK duo Equals’ “Old Habits”. While it might not be immediately apparent, the original song is actually about an artist’s addiction to alcohol wrapped up in what could easily be mistaken as a heart wrenching ballad about tripping over an ex. Phenomenal record, phenomenal remix.
Producer Wes Wax enlisted The Last Artful Dodgr and JUICEBOX three years ago for this jazzy banger. Wax also has some pretty dope music over on Soundcloud, so be sure to show your support over there, because it won’t be possible to find little gems like this if they’re not on your favorite streaming services. #SaveSoundcloud
The awkward feeling when you feel like you should’ve known about an artist a long ass time ago.
I feel that way about the producer and the rapper here, as “Jazz Crimes” is a single from Bone Music, an EYRST Records collaboration between The Last Artful, Dodgr and Neill Von Tally (2015’s Fractures EP being their first). Portland MC The Last Artful, Dodgr (yes, there’s a comma) is an incredibly unique breath of fresh air while still giving you everything from Missy to Bone Thugs to ODB energy at the drop of a dime, and that’s just on this song. Songs like “Foreclosure” reveal her to be a capable MC who can also sing…pretty damn well, too. Get familiar if you’re not.
