Late pass: EPMD'Angelo

D'Angelo ft. Redman - Me & Those Dreamin' Eyes Of Mine (Def Squad remix)
(From Me & Those Dreamin' Eyes Of Mine remixes single; 1996)



Damn, why'd nobody ever hip me to the existence of this remix? TBQH, this mix floats my Billy Ocean more than the original - you've got the same damn D'Angelo syrupy goodness, but a refreaked groove by Erick Sermon and two quick verses of flagrant du Redman featuring an amusing homme pas. A song like this makes me wish the ol' Funk Doc had been let loose on more 90's Rap & Bullshit remixes.

What's yer favourite Erick Sermon remix then? I wanna say mines is Redman's Can't Wait remix 2 but that's #actually the original version in disguise. So, it's between Redman's Rockafella remix and Keith Murray's Dip Dip Di remix where Erick Sermon transformed two songs I don't particularly like into two songs I do indeed like.

If you like you should check out the Da Beatminerz remix of Brown Sugar feat Kool G Rap if you haven't already heard it.

Yeah I know that one, and the Primo remix of Lady with AZ.

There's a Primo remix of this on the same single, but the Def Squad mix here is better.

If I remember they put this on the Brown Sugar Deluxe album that came out in 2017.

dip dip di remix is hard, also see shaq's "shoot pass slam" (slammin’ sermon remix)

Bomdigi remix is great, even if it's an obvious one.

I wish AZ recorded new rhymes for Sermon's Gimme Yours remix.
