Canadian hip hop producer, Elaquent, is keeping busy these days with plenty of production and remix work. This time he does a nice little reworking of “The Official”, one of the best tracks from Jaylib´s “Champion Sound” from 2003. Jaylib, the collaborative album between super producers Madlib and J dilla, was the first of several duo collaboration albums that Madlib started making during the 2000s.
Elaquent does a good job a deconstructing and reinterpreting the track, adding his trademark bounce to it. He even cleverly sneaks a reference in there to the equally excellent album track “The Red”.
