This one’s been staring at me for about two months now…figure it was high time I caved in and shared it. Produced by Gramatik himself, this mashup brings a whole new light to The Beatles’ “Don’t Let Me Down.” And that’s saying a lot, given how sacred songs by the Fab Four actually are.
To quote Gramatik:
So, back in 2006 when I was still rapping(in Slovene), I sampled “Don’t Let Me Down” by The Beatles and later on recorded lyrics over it.
The beat was very simple, adapted for rap vocals so I decided to revisit it, remove my raps and add a bunch of other live instruments, synths and samples to it, so you guys can enjoy it in instrumental form without it being boring.
It’s a downtempo hip-hop flavored banger that continues the evolution of collage sampling combined with live instrumentation and synthesis. Hope you guys like it.
