Newselph – If It Ain’t Broke, Remix It (LP) [Illect Recordings ILL0363]

***PRE-ORDER – Expected release date 8/3/24***

 

From the cold corners of the Canadian soil, Illect’s Newselph returns with some fiery furnace-baked heat in the form of a remix album.

On If It Ain’t Broke, Remix It, Newselph carries on tradition in the spirit of Hip Hop legends like Pete Rock, Erick Sermon, and Buckwild in the sacred art of remixing and refixing. Like the boom baptists before him, Newselph’s ear hears transmissions reserved for angels and dolphins. He takes tracks that in their original incarnations are perfectly fine, banging even, and gets all up in the inner workings of said slaps to create something entirely different.

For his latest release, he mines his backyard and reworks ten tracks from his Illect labelmates. The lead single, Those Were The Days, features the UK’s Kinetik and BREIS. Newselph turns breezy into bluesy, and the track morphs into a makeshift teleportation device to a simpler time when fat laces, arcade games, and handwritten letters reigned supreme.

The Flowers remix features Jurny Big and Brand Nubian’s most recognisable voice, Sadat X. The two emcees come together to the world and the roles they play within it. Newselph’s push-and-pull guitar groove would fit perfectly as the backdrop for a campfire convo filled with nostalgic stories and witty anecdotes.

Things get deeper than Atlantis on Matters Of Man, where Newselph again links up with his man, Sareem Poems, and one-third of the Ugly Heroes crew, Chris Orrick. Serving up a healthy slice of adult contemporary musings, the two rhyme writers break down this thing called life with the kind of knowledge, wisdom, and understanding that would make King Solomon chill. Like watery clay in the hands of Sam Wheat and Molly Jensen, Newselph scrapes and shapes a rubbery bassline, dreamy droplets of keys and pensive melodies into a reassuring ode of optimism.

Other guest appearances on the album include Sivion, Sojourn, MidCentury Modern, Ozay Moore, Dre Murray, DJ Because and many more. Like the classic TV show The Wire, all the pieces matter, and the sum of parts come together seamlessly to form something more meaningful. Written by Christopher Mitchell for Ten Pounds of Gold and Breaking Atoms. T
