Bilal’s team is doing a damn fine job in making sure we don’t forget about the uber-talented singer-producer’s sophomore album, which dropped last September. There’s a good reason for that, too, beyond the fact that Airtight’s Revenge is solid effort. It was Bilal’s first proper release since 2001’s 1st Born Second, so you can’t blame those involved for wanting to get all they can out of Airtight’s Revenge.
They’re also breathing new life into the album’s material, particularly one of its choice cuts, “Robots.” The track has become the subject of a seven-track remix EP that features remixes from cats like Strangeloop, Hazeem, and Tensei. Two of them even include guest vocalists. Hezekiah and iSHE funk up Chuck Treece’s remix while everyone’s favorite rap recluse, Blu, shows up on Remy LBO’s head-nodding version of “Robots.”
Stream the Remy LBO remix below. The remix EP, which had its stream taken down, is due out tomorrow. Fun fact: These remixes are all the winning entries in a contest that began late last year.
