OKP Premiere: J-Essential & Spose Deliver A Wavy Clip For The Vibe-Worthy Single "Remedy"
Last week, Brooklyn’s laid-back flow specialist J-Essential officially released his haze-for-daze debut Smash City, which was properly and potently previewed in the video for the lead-off single “Brainbudget.” But now that the record’s finally afloat, we’re happy to bring you the clip for their funky follow-up “Remedy,” featuring fellow wordsmith Spose. The visual perfectly marries the slow-burning groove, chock-full of warbled, submerged synths (provided by Decap) with a kaleidoscopic aesthetic that is wavy, whimsical and totally fitting all at once. J and Spose make for a terrific tandem, playing off of each other’s rhymes like a new-school and highly-sedated, Kid n Play (sans the dance, of course,) without ever taking themselves too seriously; a perfect score to your end-of day session or just a top-down ride into the setting sun. Get your day’s dose of visceral vibes from one J-Essential and Spose in the video for “Remedy” below and grab your copy of Smash City on iTunes today to continue the sonic sojourn from the comforts of your own home. Keep your eyes and ears on us for the next transmission.
