My man Ruff Snippits has been at it again. This time, he’s stolen a bunch of words from right out the mouths of some of the most talented MCs and vocalists borne to this planet and layered them carefully over his own productions. But this sort of thing doesn’t always work. With classic tunes like Erykah Badu’s On and On, or Game Over by Dabrye, Jay Dee and Phat Kat, a remix can leave you yearning for that familiar beat. A whole album of this can leave you ready to pull off your fingernails one by one. No such problems here though, as Ruff Snippits is part of that upper percentile of unsigned producers who approach this sort of thing with a little more imagination than most. High-Rise staff have yet to settle on a favourite, but feel the flip of MF Doom’s Favourite Ladies is pretty special. Click on the link below to download the whole album.
There are some exciting noises drifting across the rooftops of Brighton from the Snippits penthouse lab at the moment, so be sure to stay tuned to High-Rise for the latest on his new projects. If you are hungry for more music from Ruff Snippits now then head over to his Myspace.
