Hip-Hop, Remixes

Tor // Illinoize

Tor / Sufjan Stevens – “The Dress Looks Nice on You / Make You Feel That Way (f. Gift of Gab)”

Tor / Sufjan Stevens – “The Tallest Man / I Like It (f. Grand Puba)”

I rarely play my music on shuffle. This morning, as I was searching for something to post about, I returned to my “New Albums of 2009” playlist, and hit shuffle. The first song that came on was “That Dress Looks Nice On You / Feel That Way”, a song off of Montreal-based producer Tor’s sample album Illinoize. I love rap, I love remixes, I love Sufjan Stevens, I love jazzy instrumentals. Tor blends all of these sampled elements seamlessly into Illinoize, which marries selections off of Sufjan Stevens’ 2005 album Illinoise (as well as A Sun Came, Seven Swans, and Songs for Christmas) with MCs Aesop Rock, Big Daddy Kane, Gift of Gab (from Blackalicious, C.L. Smooth, Outkast, Brother Ali, and Grand Puba.
