Phaseone "Right & Wrong"
Lefse's Way Slow series may only be on its second release, but it's already proving to be something worth paying attention to. Last month, we shared the a-side of St. Louis-based Phaseone's contribution, and now we've got our hands on the flip. "Right & Wrong" is an instrumental cover of sorts, almost like an oddball re-interpretation of Keith Sweat's "Right and a Wrong Way." Phaseone proves he has a knack for making slow and melodious head bangers, referencing some riffs and the chord progression of Sweat's 1987 original and reworking them into a modern slow jam that sounds like you're floating on a G-funk cloud (is that just an all white '66 Impala?). If the two free downloads aren't enough for you, make sure to check out the exclusive mix Phaseone gave us earlier this month, featuring more of his originals and a few choice gems for your downloading pleasure. The limited cassette/CD edition of Phasone's Way Slow will be available December 14. (via FADER)
