It might seem like a contradiction in terms, but there is no better way to describe DJ Skizz‘s latest feature than to write that it’s Light Years ahead of those trying to recapture the magic of days gone by. Though he doesn’t rap, Skizz says plenty with his perfectly constructed, no-nonsense beat. Blending a soft, orchestral sound with an ominous, street-certified percussion rhythm, Skizz cooks up an instrumental that will make fans of grimy ‘90s hip-hop shed a tear. Taking the record’s rustic, enigmatic vibe to the next level, emcees Roc Marciano, A.G., O.C. and Godfather Pt. 3 all hop on the mic to deliver similarly hostile, grimy bars; good luck picking a favorite verse. Light Years is slated to appear on on Skizz’s forthcoming album, B.Q.E. (Brooklyn-Queens Experience), due out next month via Soulspazm Records.
