Twenty years after the release of their debut album Three Feet High and Rising, De La Soul releases their first bundle of original material since 2004′s The Grind Date. “Are You In? Nike+ Original Run” is designed for runners, but should keep contentedly immobile music lovers moving as well. Produced by Chicago party DJs Flosstradamus, the track is a continuous body of music specifically designed to reflect a runner’s experience, or give runners a “sonic fuel to clock some miles” says De La’s Posdnuos. This isn’t the first round of the Nike+ Original Run series, as they’ve also commissioned nourishing megamixes from A-Trak, Aesop Rock, LCD Soundsystem and Crystal Method to keep runners on their Forrest Gump.
