Massive Attack take their remixing shears to Nas' 'The Don'

Add your comment »

Nas recently released 'The Don', a single taken from his forthcoming tenth album Life Is Good, which is due for release in July. Now Massive Attack, who are apparently big fans of the track, have remixed the original and dropped its booming weight into an echo chamber. The result is nearly seven minutes of buoyant, dubbed-out hip-hop that begins intensely rhythmic and unravels towards it end into a lovely, fizzing, synth-driven coda. We're pleased to have been offered to host a stream of the track, which you can listen to via the embed below.
