Do U Remember the Time French beatsmith Evil Needle remixed a standout cut off JMSN‘s debut set? Well, the album version of the cut has finally made it onto The DJBooth, accompanied by the luminous visuals of Chris Cuseo. In contrast to the aforementioned revamp’s chill, stripped-down vibe, the self-produced original showcases the Motown repper’s talent for complex, cinematic arrangements. Strings, layered synth arpeggios and reverb-drenched hip-hop drums collide to create a melancholy, yet subtly driving backdrop for the artist’s bittersweet verses. Nearly all of the tracks on 2012’s †Priscilla† (and assorted remixes) have been featured on our pages but, for those who want to hear ‘em all together, the LP is still available for free streaming.
