John Roman – Revisions003
The latest in John Roman’s excellent Revisions series where he converts rap and hip hop tunes into house, techno and other dance styles. Free download.
The first two – here and here - were very good. Can this one keep up the quality? First, Ashanti’s Chapter II gets converted into an eerily accurate early 90s vocal House anthem, complete with pianos and breakdowns. Quality but never really my sort of thing. Next, dead prez’s RBG. An interesting rework. This tight techy tune reeks of cocaine induced agitation and paranoia. Really quite unsettling.

REVISIONS is a 10-part free EP series by John Roman. Each track in REVISIONS is composed almost exclusively from a different Rap/R&B album from the last 15 years. With the exception of the odd 808/909, every melodic, percussive and atmospheric element in each track is created using its corresponding source album. Listen as Crunk is transformed into UK Garage, Pop-rap is warped to Deep House, and R&B is mutated to Industrial Techno…
