The summer is fantastic over here, and so far May and June has by far been the most incredible months in 2013 hip-hop so far, and there's stil a lot of ´heavy releases stil on the horizon. This is a real geam; I always tried to spread the word on producer Preservation since I heard him on projects like "Wu-Tang Meets the Indie Culture", Afu-Ra's "Dynamine", his work on Lord Jamar's solo outing and of course Mos Def's "Tru3 Magic" and "The Eccstatic".
"The Ecstatic" was to me one of the most played albums of 2009, super original, clever storytelling built on Mos' unique cadence and some of the best underground producers in the game (Madlib, Oh No, Preservation, Mr. Oizo, Georgia Anne Muldrow, and even J Dilla). So imagine my pleasure to find out that Preservation has remixed the entire album, mixed and mastered as Jan Fairchild, as "The [RE]ecstatic". While it doesn't match the original album, it's a noble effort and actually sounds fresh as hell. Also included are an exclusive joint called "Black Fantastic", produced by heavyweight underground producer and frequent Mos Def collaborator Minnesota. That "The [RE]ecstatic" is a free project does of course not hurt either, so hurry up and download this while you still can. All you have to do is enter your name and e-mail adress and start downloading, you don't even have to wait to get a confirmation mail. BANG YOUR HEAD to this!!'
