Kotchy "Sometimes I Get Down (Mike Slott Remix)"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
- Label: Done Right
Brooklyn-based avant hip-hopper Kotchy (pictured above) is getting set to release his latest album, Two, on February 1. Back in November, he gave us a sneak peek in the form of a trippy video for album opener "Sometimes I Get Down." Now the song has been remixed by Irish-born, NYC-based producer Mike Slott, who has basically extracted almost all of Kotchy's distinctive flow. Gone are the laid-back talk-raps and noodling acoustic guitar loop, as Slott has picked up the tempo and assembled a playful little number full of swirling keys, melodic whimsy, and bouncy, chopped-up beats. Think of it as the original's hyperactive younger brother.
