As mega-plexes buckle under on onslaught of over-branded superheroes this summer, there’s one heroic team-up that beats them all: Slimkid3 & DJ Nu-Mark! With the Delicious Vinyl release of their album-length eponymous collaboration, the legendary Pharcyde MC and Jurassic 5 DJ/producer have created a soulful Hip-Hop soundtrack for the coming months and beyond.
Ever since his time as a founding member of The Pharcyde, Slimkid3 has stood out for his relationship raps, both warm-hearted and cooly observant. As an innovative member of Jurassic 5, DJ Nu-Mark has long propelled golden era sounds into the future.
“Ding ding! True school is in session!” trumpeted okayplayer.com when Tre & Nu-Mark released their freebie EP Another Day, Another Dollar in 2011. The duo knew they were onto something good, and re-upped to create new music.
The new album’s standout tracks include “Bouillon” featuring Del and Murs, “King” featuring Diamond D, reggae-fueled summer jam “Bom Bom Fiya”, and “I Know, Didn’t I” a savvy flip of Darondo’s soul classic.
