The timeless catalog of Erykah Badu doesn’t really need any help in the funk department, but what happens when you take her classic cuts and weave them into hip-hop breaks and and even harder-knocking format? You’ll have to listen to Tony Slowmo‘s newest set in order to find out. There’s some Milkbone in there, a bit of Nas and plenty more of those classic breaks you’ve been head-nodding to for years. This one only recently re-appeared online, but it was in truth made way back in 1998, laid down straight to cassette and recorded via…a Radioshack microphone. Still, it brings the goodness. “Apple Tree” over a sparse rimshot and snippets of The Roots’ “Proceed”? Check.
