Legendary Hip Hop DJ and producer DJ Premier is well known for bringing the underground sound to the forefront and helping to preserve it’s relevance today. He has taken J Cole’s track “1985 – Intro to “The Fall Off” from his new album “KOD” and created a remix. It’s classic Preemo as you would expect with sharp scratches, dusty drums and powerful horns.
More from DJ Premier on how the remix came to fruition:
I bought J. Cole’s ‘KOD’ LP as soon as it dropped with no warning to the fans; which I too am a fan.
“1985” resonated with me immediately so I asked Cole if I could get the Acapella and do an underground DJ version just for fun.
He sent it and I just pieced some stab samples to keep it on some boom bap shit.
We need a J Cole track produced by DJ Premier.
