Damn, did these take long enough to come out or what? I remember talking with the folks at Certified about this single months ago (maybe even a year?). Better late than never I suppose and both songs were some of the best material that Encore’s put out (and yeah, I’m including stuff off his album in that category). Seattle’s Jake One handles the production duties on both sides and he brings his considerable crates to the floor. The “Filthy (Jake One Remix)” works off a lightly stepping piano chord progression and sounds a’ight but it’s not as nice as the original version. The “Ice Age Remix” is cool though (no pun intended). I liked the original but Jake brings the vibe from an entirely side – full of hard stomping piano chords and blaring horns. Keeping to the minimalistic principle of the original version, Jake One shows that sometimes less can be more while Encore’s new hook keeps the pacing slick. Hard to call this an essential given how old the original are but they’re still good songs.
