Audio: Pharoahe Monch, “Body Baby (An Optimo Espacio Mix)”

May 30, 2007



Pharoahe Monch's latest single "Body Baby" was enough of a left-field look on its own, but the official remixes are even more unconventional for a major-label rap single. Sinden & the Count of Monte Cristal take it to the rave cave, while Vicious Circle go for a drum n bass approach, but this echoed-out take by Glasgow's Optimo DJs might be our favorite. It triples up the bassline and steals underutilized chunks of the original - feedback fuzz, yelps, handclaps, organ riffs - to stretch out for damn near eight minutes. Plus there's a dub instrumental! No offense, Monchhichi.
