Bisco Smith "Freshwater (Blockhead Remix)"
New York's Bisco Smith definitely knows how to spit, with an intelligent flow similar to Aesop Rock's early work. It is safe to say, though, that Blockhead's remix improves on the stuttering beats of the original, instead placing Smith's rhymes over a more traditional, yet more hype, late-'90s sound, replete with triumphant brass loops and low-slung, heavy bass. These are "freshwater flows," but Blockhead knows how to make them work in the most proper way.
