I recorded this mini-mix of the new album from Nineties hip hop legends Arrested Development as a wee promo for their upcoming date at Edinburgh's Picture House on Sunday 17th October.
Old stars do come-back tours all the time but the new material is rarely as consistently strong as this (aptly titled!) new album. They return some twenty years after they first stormed the UK's charts, hearts and minds, spreading positive messages via conscientious, intelligent rhymes, boom-bap beats and upbeat melodies on hits such as Mr Wendal and Everyday People (alongside the likes of De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest) back in hip hop's 'daisy age', winning two Grammy awards in the process. This should be quite a show!
