Philly's Reinvention...


Just got something new and interesting through the inbox today that I thought I would share with y'all. Reinvention is a duo out of Philly made up of one DJ (DJ Entendu) and one emcee (Classic) who...
mixes old school hip-hop production with samples from an eclectic mix of artists like Grizzly Bear, Florence and the Machine, Feist and others to make bangers that can appeal to anybody from a dancing fiend to a top-down, wind-in-your-hair, cross-country roadtripper.
I'm not usually one for "mash-up" type material but this is kinda dope. It's not necessarily a "mash-up" in the sense of the Jay-Z/Linkin Park type, but more adding hip-hop production to some indie rock and then letting Classic rhyme his own lyrics over top. The first single from their mixtape "A Rapper In Denial",  Forgot (feat. Florence and The Machine) dropped last week and Crossroads dropped on Tuesday. The mixtape will drop sometime in the next couple weeks. You can pick that up from the homies over at Pigeons and Planes. For now you can peep and download the above tracks at their Soundcloud page.
