In a recent interview with Life & Times, DJ Premier revealed that he has completed a 9 track, full-length album, based around the samples of one artist, but he cannot reveal who.

“I’m doing a project that I can’t mention yet. It’s a full album. I just completed it with an artist and we’re gonna announce it in maybe in the next week or two. It’s already done. It features Ab-Soul, Mac Miller, [and] Slaughterhouse is on it,” Premier told L&T. “That’s all I can really tell you right now. It’s a really unique project. It’s a project where I sample only one artist and only used their samples for the entire album. I strictly just use that one person – took all their samples, broke it into pieces and made my own beats out of it, and scratched it – the whole album. It was gonna be an EP, but it turned into a whole album. It’s gonna have nine tracks on it. It’s a really cool project.”

In the same interview, he also speaks on recent work with Disclosure collaborator Sam Smith.

“I just got done doing a remix for Sam Smith who’s pretty bubblin’ right now. It’s called “I’m Not The Only One.” I did a cool, hip hop version. It’s still mellow, but I put my hard drums to it and my style of mellow piano. I did a remix for Disclosure earlier last year and Sam Smith was on it called “Latch.” So, we met when they performed at Terminal 5 in New York and I met Sam. He was like, “Yo man, I got three singles dropping. Maybe you should get on the third one.” That’s how that happened.”

Guesses on that secret album: Bob James? David Axelrod? Roy Ayers? James Brown? Weigh in with your theories below.

    I hope it’s some very obscure artist/group I have never heard of. I love Preem but hope it’s not some cliché artist like Curtis Mayfield, James Brown, Al Green, etc… whose music has been sampled too much IMO. Can’t keep going to the same field to graze. Gotta find greener less ravished pastures.

    Poon thats exactly what I was thinking too.

  • Dayz says:

    I just hope one day Solar relinquishes all the unreleased acapellas from Guru to Preem so he can make a fitting last LP.
