Take an intriguing and dynamic riddim instrumental, Ital Stew (‘Boy Shorts’, Mr Vegas, you know it), produced by Jah Snowcone (nice name!), ask Ornine to remix the ting, and voila, you have the Ornine Version. Clever sampling of the original bassline, mixed into something a lot deeper, more minimal, abstracted and fidgety. This is one I can’t wait to mix in, its big!
And now for the original. I considered posting Boy Shorts, but y’all know that one!
This is another Ornine favourite, the simple shifting melody and the slow stompy rhythm, with additional stuttering mid and high range vocal cutups (‘molten hiccups’) make this a pretty immersive one. Reflection time!
