Von Steely Chan stammt das absolut großartige Mos World Mixtape/Mashup, dass, wie der Name schon sagt, Mos Def mit Lee Fields & The Expressions mischt. Mos Def rappt auf der wunderbaren Soul Musik von Lee Fields & The Expressions. Funzt bis auf wenige Ausnahmen ganz wunderbar.

Mos World is the third mixtape release of Steely Chan, a production duo from Vancouver but currently based in Toronto. Every week we release a new remix available for free download. Our music is steeped in the source material of hip hop beat culture: heavy funk, soul, jazz, dub reggae, disco, psych rock, electronica, freak folk, brazillian/afrobeat/world music. In other words, any and all musics with strong rhythm and a healthy dose of funk!

Our latest compilation is a departure from our previous bootleg remixes. This time around we’ve entered the nebulous world of blends, re-edits and mashups. Mos World combines the rhyme stylings of the mighty Mos Def with soulful instrumentation from Lee Fields & The Expressions’ “My World” album (2009 Truth & Soul). The result is an inspired adaptation of deep soul balladry from the 60s and 70s for the ears of crate-digging hip hop headz. We think the sound will appeal to indie hip hop fans, rare groove soul-revivalists, mashup lovers and everyone in between.
