An often forgotten pressing within an era of New York City Hip-Hop widely recognized as the street born musical genre’s renaissance, Grand Puba‘s “I Like It” – albeit popular with DJs of the day – almost unfairly remains an afterthought when chronicling the rich history of Rap music.

Breathing new life into an overlooked classic, Fizzy Beats chairman Mr Joseph reworks the Brand Nubian alumnist’s classic solo anthem in a Liquid Drum & Bass stylee.  Maintaining the original incarnation’s infectious chorus, Jazz inspired melody, and large portions of the New York based Rapper’s lyrical wordplay, Mr Joseph sequences a fine tuned rhythmic section — in the form of a crisply sequenced drum break and warm humming basslines — to create a steppy head nodding affair fuelled by nostalgia.
