It doesn’t take much to send me on a YouTube bender these days. A half-remembered cartoon I watched twenty years ago leads to hours spent watching semi-coherent conspiracies: “GUY FIERI OBAMA LIZARD PROOF – 2 HOURS,” etc. So it’s not surprising that this How To Dress Well remix from CFCF has me cruising through dozens of “sensitive Puff Daddy” videos. It’s definitely been one of the more rewarding (and focused!) journeys into the past.
Coloured by a swelling orchestral warm-up and a clip from David Gordon Green’s film George Washington, the Montreal producer’s “Running Back” remix strikes the original‘s Yin Yang Twins-y triple kicks on the verse and brightens the neo-soul shuffle. And credit to Cadence Weapon, who brings back the content of the jiggy era’s sad rap within a more dexterous form. Listen below courtesy of CFCF’s Gorilla Vs. Bear takeover.
