It's next to impossible to put down the creative genius that is Cookin' Soul. With nearly a decade of remixes, and mashups under their belts, the Spanish duo have proven to the world that they have a knack for bringing out the best in any artist they decide to sonically reconstruct.
But what would happen if they took a direct flight to Queens? On the Big Noyd, Large Professor and Kool G Rap featured street banger, "Naturally Born," that's exactly what happens.
After recently appearing on Coalmine Records' decennary compilation LP, 'Unearthed', the original Ayatollah produced head nodder, provided a nostalgic backdrop for the trio to do their thing; this time around, Cookin' Soul have taken the track to new heights by giving an Uprock-themed overhaul to the original, connecting more to the era of Shell Toes and dookie rope chains, than the time when Timbos and gold medallions reigned supreme. Both versions are now available as a limited edition 7-inch 45, exclusively for Black Friday, via Fat Beats, and the remix is available for download, via iTunes.
For more hard hitting, innovative remixes, make sure to check Coalmine Records' forthcoming remix compilation, 'Remineded: A Collection Of New & Old Remixes', which includes features from the likes of Blu, Royce Da 5'9", Heltah Skeltah and Guilty Simpson, and includes remixes from Large Professor, Diamond D, M-Phazes, The Audible Doctor, Zilla Rocca, and more.
