"The SEAN TOURE Remix Project"

Despite not really having heard all that much from Baltimore producer/MC Sean Touré, I loved pretty much everything I've heard from the man since I first came across him in 2011. Since I've been trying to follow his career as well as possible, it came as little of a suprise to find out that this super talented cat actually released a free 21-track album of Toure remixes of classics by Sean Price, Common, Bilal, 50 Cent, The Roots, Pete & CL, Slum Village, and even Michael Jackson way back in 2010. Touré transforms these often hardcore cuts intro brilliant excursions into soul and jazz full of horns, deep bass lines, piano licks and excellent drum programming. 

At the moment Touré is preparing "Volume 2" of the remix project which will include new takes on music by Jill Scott, nas, Dr. Dre, Pete Rock, J Dilla, Michael Jackson. The thought is that a lot of music videos directed by Todd Kelley will be released as singles up until the release of the new remix LP; the latest being Dr. Dre's "Still D.R.E.". You can watch all videos that's been released so far @ Todd Kelley's Vimeo page  To support Touré for all this great, free music, make sure to pick up a copy of his official solo album, the critically acclaimed "Sound Channeler: The Invisible Man" @ UGHH.
