GBE’s Ballout, aka Mr. One-Take, maintains a pretty laissez-faire recording policy, which means that deep-cut gems like From the Street‘s “What U Got,” featuring Capo and Young Gleesh, are often way too low-quality to play on nice soundsystems. Montreal’s Tommy Kruise saves the day with a refurbished version; it’s not only club-appropriate, it fleshes out Zaytoven’s originally wispy beat into something rich and booming without compromising its integrity. All my people who’ve succumbed to playing YouTube rips of rare rap songs in the club: rejoice. Kruise’s next EP, currently untitled but featuring gorgeous single “Hers,” is due out soon.
