Phoniks – Shaolin Summer: The Remixes [Album]

Posted on August 19, 2015 by


As Phoniks gears up to release “Knowledge Of Self” with Awon this fall he first surprises us with this funky mid-summer offering. A 12-track remix tape featuring jazz-funk and disco based flips on classic Wu-Tang material including songs such as “C.R.E.A.M.”, “Gravel Pit”, and “Criminology”. Phoniks takes performances that were originally spit over RZA’s dark, chilling instrumentals and turns them into upbeat, funk-driven summer jams. The high tempo disco breaks’s take the listener up past the mid-way point in the album where they succumb to more traditional jazz and soul style instrumentals that will keep the head nodding until the finish line. Altogether a very enjoyable listen on a nice summer day and what should become a staple in hip-hop head’s summer playlists.
