Roc Marciano "Sounds Like Porridge" (Mixed by Pipomixes)


"Roc Marci's music is the quintessential example of old becoming new. There's nothing new about stripped down, loop-based production sprinkled with grimy raps. However, the way in which Marciano does it and the timing in which it is being done, make this old tried and true combination very refreshing. As much I tried to resist doing this mix because I considered it low hanging fruit, I could only resist for so long. The music is just too good and I like Roc's catalog too much to have not made this mix. This mix was completed six months ago and has been sitting on the shelf collecting dust ever since. I held off on releasing the mix because I thought another Marci album was going to drop during the fourth quarter of 2014 (as was done with his 3 previous LPs during the last two years) and I wanted to time the mix's release with Roc's latest album. No such luck and I can't sit on this mix any longer because too much time has passed since I released my last mix. So here you all go. Enjoy it because I'm not sure when the next mix is coming." Peace to Pipomixes.
