Preemptive Strike

So as summer comes to a close, I've decided to share with you my all time favorite summer jam. For the past 3 months this has been my go to eazy breezy, late night summer tune. The type of song that should only be played after hours. I just got the live version this past weekend while digging through some crates. Holy fuck! If only I had this 3 months ago. This track is better than the studio version for a few reasons.

Reason number 1: Its slower and has a much more relaxed “summer sweaty” vibe.

Reason number 2: The synth riff which is by far the best part of this song is much more drawn out and played with attitude and conviction.

Reason number 3: The piano doesn’t have that annoying out of sync vibrato.

Reason number 4: This song is meant to be played live and the studio version just doesn’t do it justice.

I know the summer is pretty much over, and if I could have posted this back in June I would have. However the weathers still nice, and this song still deserves some play time. Enjoy.

Dope...DJ Premier sampled this for Gangstarr, but I'd never heard the original before. Think I like this better actually
