Alex B "Dro on the D-Lo"
Colorado beat scientist Alex B is in the midst of a massive US tour that kicked off shortly after he completed his recent XLR8R podcast, but this new bootleg remix just surfaced last week. The 1320 imprint has released a free label sampler, and this re-work of Missy Elliot is one of the standout selections. It's nothing too fancy, as Alex B lays Missy's inimitable flow over some propulsive hip-hop drums and, as expected, plenty of bass. Things do get a bit wobbly toward the end of the track, but the song got our heads nodding, so we'll give it a pass.
