Balam Acab dips into Atlanta's double-time R&B canon again, reworking KP & Envyi's wildly positive Friday night jam "Swing My Way." The original, sampled on Charles Hamilton's "Brooklyn Girls," was produced by Lithonia, GA's Mixzo and included on the 1998 compilation Rhythm & Quad 166, which you can still buy on cassette. Acab's version, self-released on Twitter, pitches the vocals way-down and drowns the track's bounce in frothy river algae.
