Mos Def + Dub = Mos Dub

Imagelink

You might remember that I love I my hip hop all mashed up, notably the Jaydiohead (Jay-Z and Radiohead mash-up).

The man behind that project, Max Tannone, has some hot hot new projects. I’ve just downloaded his Mos Dub album. As the name suggests, it’s Mos Def given the dub treatment.

Which means Mos rhymes all sunshine riddimed up, perfect for summer BBQs, beach blanket bingo, and road trips. If that sounds like something you might like, you will. It’s awesome.

I also discovered Max has a Beastie Boy project called Doublecheck Your Head, which is Check Your Head remixed with… more Beastie Boys.

I’m currently ear feasting on both projects. I think you should do the same.

Note: I wonder whether Max picks his projects based on the best name he can come up with, or whether the music comes first. However he’s inspired, his strike rate on both naming and music-mashing is 100%.

Second Note: The Jaydiohead project now has Jaydiohead: The Encore.
