DJ Premier & The BADDER – BPATTER
Preemo has been a busy man not just this year but pretty much every year. The recent success of PRhyme the collaboration with Royce Da 5’9 has kept the 49 year old quite busy. Now the Gang Starr legend has started a new project and this time he has decided to ditch the emcee and instead team up with a live band.
The band is called The BADDER and it consists of a drummer, a bassist and two horn players and of course Preemo on the decks. Their first single is titled BPATTER and its a high energy jazz style piece that really gets the heart rate pumping. Of course Preemo brings his incredible scratching skills to the table but he also provides the little vocals that appear in the track (by vocals I mean some quite humorous screaming from the legendary producer).
Whilst this may not be the type of music we would expect from Preemo, it is still some impressive work nonetheless. It’s something different and definitely something that gets the head boppin’. Combining this live band with his impeccable scratching skills is incredibly dope and something I surely want to hear more of. There is an LP in the works, so keep you ears peeled for more, in the mean time check out BPATTER below. Keep it up Preemo!!!
