Download Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and Preservation’s ‘REcstatic’ Album

yasiin-bey-the-recstaticRemember that remix of Yasiin Bey’s (Mos Def) “Quiet Dog Bite Hard” that hit the web this past April? Well, it arrived with the news that the producer behind the remix—Bey’s tour DJ and collaborator, Preservation—had reworked the entirety of 2009’s The Ecstatic. Thankfully, they weren’t just messing with us. The full remix album, dubbed The REcstatic, arrives today with all-new takes on every track off the original LP. It’s a refreshing take on one of the most underrated rap albums of the past few years.

    THIS REMIX ALBUM IS ABSOLUTELY GREAT. IT HAD TO BE ONE HELL OF A TASK TO REMIX THESE SONGS, ESPECIALLY SO LONG AFTER THE ORIGINAL ALBUM’S RELEASE. I LISTENED TO THE REMIXED VERSIONS OF MY FAVORITE TRACKS AND AT FIRST I SAID THAT THEY DIDN’T COMPARE. AFTER A FEW DISTRACTION FREE LISTENS, I CAN SEE HOW WELL CRAFTED THEY ARE. I’M REALLY FEELING THE REMIX OF HISTORY. SO MUCH SO THAT I WILL SAY THAT IT ECLIPSES THE ORIGINAL. PISTOLA, NO HAY NADA MAS & WORKER’S COMP ARE TOP TIER AS WELL. GREAT JOB PRESERVATION. YOU OUTDID YOURSELF.

    I prefer the original but The Ecstatic is also one of favorite hip hop albums of all time. I’d like to hear more production from Preservation though. Definitely definitely dope.

    Not impressed with this. I d-loaded it then deleted it. Just listen to the real album cuz it never gets old.
