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.”
