Old School Vs. New School

Old School Vs. New School

CD

Overview

The notion behind Old School vs. New School is based around Jive's stable of old-school hip-hop artists (like A Tribe Called Quest, Whodini, Boogie Down Productions, and DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince), plus the Stone Roses from its Silvertone offshoot, tossed into new-school settings, i.e. remixes by '90s electronica artists. And it works surprisingly well. Jungle, big beat, and hardcore techno coat these hip-hop relics quite naturally at times. Aphrodite hotwires Tribe's "1nce Again," Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim) does the same to their "I Left My Wallet in El Segundo," and Doc Martin gives their "Footprints" a contemporary spin, while DJ Icey twists Whodini's "Five Minutes of Funk" into a countdown of electronic euphoria, and both Grooverider and Rabbit in the Moon rework the Roses' "Fools Gold" into even more psychedelic realms. Only the displaced R. Kelly tune feels strained in its new environment.
