Recent Rhymesayers signee Grieves, whose sophomore 88 Keys & Counting LP was recently re-released, apparently decided to take a break from his microphone duties to showcase his skills as a producer. He teamed up with previous collaborator/touring partner Budo to throw together this remix EP dubbed A Tribute to Felt 3. The project takes five of the more gutter tracks off Murs and Slug’s Felt 3: A Tribute to Rosie Perez and turns them into summer-friendly jams. Even though these new beats are a nice complement to Murs and Slug’s raps, it’s kind of difficult to get the original beats out of my mind. In particular, Aesop Rock’s abrasive, but fitting, production just sounded so perfect on “Bass For Your Trunk,” though the new twist from Grieves and Budo works well, too.
