Remember 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.
