Let’s face it, our Fresh here at TSS would be respected way less if we relied solely on time-sensitive musical content like many of our counterparts. Our readers wouldn’t get gems like the Smoking Session we just did with Strong Arm Steady, or our intimate Ghostface Killah Valentine’s collection, let alone this five-year-old neck-breaker from The Knife. Another one of many non-hip-hop songs we stumble late into the party for, the heavy “Heartbeats” is Jenga-stacked to the brim with every key of synth that fits and leaves me wondering – with such similar elements – why MCs don’t reach out to more Electronic artists for production?
Tell me Chiddy Bang or Wiz wouldn’t compliment this nicely.
