While the speed at which the Internet operates nowadays has all but killed the momentum for actual mixtapes, there’s nothing wrong with a compilation to kill multiple birds with one stone. If you’re fan of The-Dream like myself Rob Pursey’s The Dream…Featuring The Dream! Pt. 3 is an efficient recipe of songs from Mr. Nash ranging from demos, to unreleased records to features that may have gotten swept under the radar. In Rob’s own words:
Therefore, once again this is a collection of those demos, remixes, one-off releases under his name The Dream (…we await more from Terius Nash of course), mixed all the way live by myself, featuring his version of hits by Beyonce, would-have been hits by Mary J. Blige, features with the likes of Big Sean, T.I. and R.Kelly and those magic low-key Dream studio leaks that always give you yet another side of the man. With ‘Love IV’ arriving in a couple of months, and UK shows (Wireless etc.) on the horizon, this seemed like the perfect time to collect this all together once more before we’re treated to his latest masterpiece.
There’s that. Now, all I need is a release date for Love IV. A 1977 Pt. 2 wouldn’t hurt to kill time either if Brother Terius is feeling generous.
