Tall Black Guy x James Brown - "The Big Payback" (Tall Black Guy BIGBack Slap-Up Re-Edit I)


Tall Black Guy drops "The Big Payback" (Tall Black Guy BIGBack Slap-Up Re-Edit 1) - a rework of the classic James Brown track he chopped up a few years ago. The track dropped for free download following the release of his latest LP 8 Miles To Moenart, which arrived in May. The slap-up is another track crafted in the tradition of Tall Black Guy's melodically driven heaters. The foundation of this joint is cleverly constructed from the ghastly vocal intro that careens across the opening of the original track. Crescendos rise and fall like a series of small explosions as the horns radiate over the open drum break. Tall Black Guy breathes new life into an old favorite with his take on a timeless soul classic from James Brown. Check "The Big Payback" (Tall Black Guy BIGBack Slap-Up Re-Edit 1) below. Purchase Tall Black Guy's 8 Miles To Moenart via iTunes. Read Tall Black Guy's exclusive interview with Okayplayer here.
