BREIS and KINETIK Get the Newselph Treatment on “Those Were The Days”

When the good folks over at Illect hit me up with a track, I immediately give it a listen, then say “I want to write about this.” Heck, if they do it on SubmitHub, I may skip the listen altogether at first and automatically say “yep, this is what I want on SOTB.” That’s because, with their vast knowledge of hip-hop and the fact they constantly pay homage to the originators and OGs of the rap game, they know their stuff.

The latest Newselph remix, as there’ve been a lot, finds the Canadian producer giving us dope beats for UK artists BREIS and KINETIK to speak about the past over. The production is, as always, top-tier. The lyrics are as well, as they’re heavy on the storytelling element and heavy on the nostalgia (without being hokey). Overall, it’s a great collaboration, one that I’d love to hear more of. If you want some recent hip-hop that feels like it’d be right at home in the mid-1990s, check this one out above and support dope music in all its forms. If you want more Newselph production, check out his If It Ain’t Broke, Remix It project.
