Flashback Fridays - Public Enemy - Shut Em Down (Pete Rock Remix)


what do I really need to say about this remix... this is one of my many favorite tracks, by the one and only Pete Rock.. the textures in this track are jus sick... whether you get trapped in the swirling horn lines, or the organ thats so deep down in the mix you need a blunt to hear it... (trust me its there, you gotta listen reeaaal hard...) the vocal sample gives me the chills still... reminds me of one of those bands from church back in the day.. eerie and beautiful at the same time...

listening back to this track... it feels like it came from another world.. the new york that spawned this music has long gone away... as sad as that may sound on one hand, the flipside is that hip hop music is universal, and its true fans will continue to pass it down no matter where they are on this earth...
