One of hip-hop’s finest turntablists, Rob Swift, is trying his hand at mixing and cutting the hell out of classical music. On his upcoming album, The Architect, he marries classical and turntablism for what sounds like an insane combination. The first leak from the project is “Rabia – 2nd Movement” and it’s a haunting piece that deserves repeated listens. This member of the X-ecutioners is not messing around on here. The Architect is due out on Feb. 23 on Ipecac Recordings. After you check out the track, hit the skip for its video.
