Run It with Scion

I've got some more phat beats to share with you from our friends over at Scion and their Scion A/V label. Out of the kindness of their hearts (and a little marketing smarts), they've put out some excellent remix singles like Ghostface Killah's Charlie Brown and one from 45 King, as well as some full lengths, including two from the most respectable Daptone Records featuring a bunch of artists from their roster. Scion covers all the costs of putting out the discs, and any proceeds generated go right to the artists. And of course, we get some sweet tracks.

I've got a handful more to push out to you, starting with today's: a remix of legendary old Skool artists EPMD's Run It. It's got a Middle-Eastern flair to it and Duke Dumont steps things down to make it a slow steady burn. It's one of three on the single, and just barely edges out the first track (the Herve's Got His Hands Up Remix) as my favorite. I'm not sure that you can buy the single anywhere yet, but Scion gives them away free at their events (which are listed on the Scion Events page). If you can't make one, keep your eyes open in iTunes in early October.
