Cut Chemist – Adidas to Addis (Mp3)

theFADER said it best:

Cut Chemist is like everyone else who kinda flipped out over Ethiopian xylophone after they saw Broken Flowers. So much so, that he got himself a gig opening for the main man on the sound track, Mulutu Astatke. Sound of the Police, his new album, is a mix he made for that slot, all completed on one turntable using only African records, aided only by a set bank of loops. He liked it enough that he decided to release it officially. Police draws connections from disco to hip-hop to their roots and parallels in various genres of African music. “Adidas to Addis,” is from the album, vocals chopped to death, slowed to a medium syrup and flavored with just a single hit of cowbell.
