a few weeks ago gilles peterson started dropping some tunes from the q-tip album, The Renaissance, on his radio show (where you need to check out the latest show which is a vinyl only, hip-hop brownswood basement session). these tunes captured the imagination and you just knew that this was going to be such a great hip-hop album that harks back to the golden years while managing to effortlessly pull the sounds onwards and upwards in a way that only q-tip and a few others can do.
i got the album last week and am lovin' it. there have been a good few tunes posted from the album already and i'm surprised that this tune 'won't trade' hasn't been hyped up more. the track excellently samples ruby andrews powerful voice, kickin' beats and beautiful piano loops from 'you made a believer out of me' which is a classic (northern) soul tune.
while we're at it, might as well check out the video for 'move' off the same album. choice!
