Big Daddy Kane - Give A Demonstration Part.2 (Grant Phabao Remix)

Big Daddy Kane Grant Phabao Remix

Connie Price & the Keystones began as a recording project for Stones Throw's Now-Again label involving Dan Ubick (Breakestra, Madlib's Sound Directions) and Todd M. Simon (Macy Gray, Antibalas, El Michels Affair). Combining elements of soul, afro beat, dub reggae, late ‘60's/early ‘70's film scores, and psychedelic rock & jazz into a soundtrack for the best film you've never seen.

After the superb Wildflowers album on Now-Again in 2004, Connie Price & the Keystones joined forces with Big Daddy Kane in 2007 for an exclusive 12-inch in the Scion A/V series, revisiting the classic Big Daddy Kane track Give A Demonstration with new vocals from the smooth operator himself, over some heavy badass funk.

The vinyl is quite rare and you'll have to pay 40 Euros now to get it... You won't find this track on their Tell Me Something soundtrack-inspired hip hop album from 2008, but, hopefully, the track will appear on the upcoming new full length. Connie Price & the Keystones are currently in the studio working on with Big Daddy Kane. Look out for this new piece of NY funk/hip hop hybrid to appear at the end of the year...

Meanwhile here's an exclusive new rework of this rare track, taylored-dressed into party-skanking reggae by our french dubmeister Grant Phabao. A smashing hit, again!? What do YOU think?

This is one of the greatest cuts I've never heard! This has got to be released! I can't believe it; an amazing piece! Please please release this somehow, as it IS here. It has an audience; a big one. This kind of flow is purely Kane and it's a side of Kane everybody wants more of. Great flow, laid back yet sharp. So raw, so rare, so original. We need more of this.
