Colossus West Oaktown Remixes
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: OM
On this double disc release, producer Charlie Tate and his Colossus crew take on two very different styles of hip-hop. On disc one, Tate crafts ultra-chill jazz and soul-fueled beats, which MCs including Oakland‘s Azeem and London‘s Roots Manuva fluidly rap over. On disc two, the West Town Remixes, Ed Shrager joins Tate to liven things up with some thumping, neck-snapping beats. Musically, disc one features productions that are more refined... but not necessarily better sounding-in fact, it‘s hard not to be drawn to the heavy basslines of the high-powered remix disc.
