The Cookin’ Soul fellas have it all figured out. Not only does the Spanish production duo consistently turn out funky, head-knocking beats, but they seem hell bent on traveling the world, enjoying nothing but the best that this great globe has to offer. We’ve already heard evidence of their journeys through Japan, and now CS is back, lounging with Dutch rhyme stylist MC Melodee under the rich Mexican sun in their new video for “Terrible Thing To Waste.”
First off–the beat. Sliding their signature clean guitar tones over gritty drums and a classic Notorious B.I.G. sample is textbook Cookin’ Soul and gives Melodee an ideal platform from which to spit. We were smitten with the chin-up attitude of “Terrible Thing To Waste” (along with it’s sly roving bassline) when it arrived on Melodee’s Coolin EP almost a year ago. But now, thanks to the new video, we plan to just keep it on repeat all spring and into the summer. With simple scenes of palm trees, blue lagoons and Melodee rhyming with infectious poise, it’s an ideal clip for ringing in the warmer time of year. Grab your beach towel, throw on some shades, and watch “Terrible Thing To Waste” below.
