Okay, first off, this song is very well done. Unlike a lot of other artists who have been putting out records recently, Stint clearly has an appreciation for the minimal side of music, utilizing the power of each individual instrument to the best of its ability.
While I was listening to this track though, what really stuck out to me was the Soundcloud description, and how it explained that this remix is really meant to reflect an indictment of music, the music business, and its direction in the future. I won't get too much into it, but if you listen to the lyrics from Q-Tip, they're especially good in helping to understand the industry and where it's going from an artist's perspective. So, you really do get the best of both worlds on this one: a chilled-out, well-produced track teamed up with verses that have legit meaning. Make sure to get your download now – it's only supposed to be available for the first 48 hours after release.
