Song of the Day: Digable Planets “Rebirth Of Slick (Altered Tapes Remix)”


When Digable Planets first came out I was working at a record store, earning money for my first set of turntables. I received the album on promo and had all my friends hooked on them right away. We all were into Black Sheep and De La Soul and this seemed like that perfect style that kept with all the things we loved in hip hop but added that spaced out vibe. “Rebirth of Slick” was completely played out to me a couple of years ago, but there’s been enough time away from it that I’m now totally enjoying it on another level. This Altered Tapes remix ups the BPMs, adds a moombahton-style beat, and just uses key parts of the vocals to and original samples to make for a dance floor shaker.
