Koushik & Percee P — Cold Beats: A Cold Heat Megamix
A mega-mix of beats and samples taken from Now-Again’s Cold Heat Vol. 1 compilation – the definitive anthology of heavy funk rarities between 1968 and 1974.
Through the wizardry of cut-and-paste, Koushik’s mega-mix of drum-break-heavy funk provides the kind of fast-paced beats where the legendary Percee P feels right at home. The celebrated O.G. Bronx MC –aka the Rhyme Inspector – exhibits his trademark verbal gymnastics over Koushik’s expert mixing, and the results are ice cold.
In addition to the “Cold Beats” mega-mix (a vocal version with Percee rhyming plus an instrumental), the two sides include several other bonus beats and interludes, as well as a “drumapella.” As the second Cold Heat 12-inch in a series of 2 (following J.Rocc’s mega-mix NA5021), this is the kind of team-up you’ll only find on Now-Again.
