Quelle is a Potholes favorite. We’ve featured his tapes, and gave him a lot of love for his debut Shotgun & Sleek Rifle. His raw but balanced lyrics, nasally vocal tone, and crate-diggers ear for dirty slappers should keep his sounds in the players of any rap consumer. Recently, Quelle signed with Mellow Music Group, and as an appetizer for his debut on the label, they’re giving away some of his remixes for free.
Here Quelle chops-n-slops the likes of The Beatnuts, Fiona Apple, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Cam’Ron and Tha Outsidaz with pre-fame Eminem. The whole tape sounds like a computer ate the sound board of an’ 80s rap studio and a blunted kid from the future re-created the audio tracks. It’s experimental, funky and stridently the type of sound we’ve come to expect from Quelle. Fuxwitit.
