New Release : Nature – “Throw It Up” (DJ Concept Remix)

Strong Island‘s DJ Concept revisits Nature‘s “Throw It Up” and flips it into something off the chain with a warm bassline, flute like samples with banging drums.

The original track, which appeared on Seasons Changed: Winter Edition, featured the legendary Queensbridge rapper on his NYC-rap steez. That was thanks in part to Marco Polo, whose instrumental captured the grit and grime of Nature’s rhymes. But for Concept, there was more to the track than that.

As you can hear on his remix, the producer transformed the song into a feel-good anthem with looping flutes and pianos, giving the track a sentimental and soulful vibe. So when Nature spits, “Feet firm on the ground, is the way I’m rooted/ Ni**as lovin’ what I’m doing, plus the way I do it,” it sounds less like bravado and more like a celebration.

And just in case you’ve yet to peep Concept’s other projects from this year, be sure to check his collab album Seventy Nine with Planet Asia, in addition to his uplifting instrumental tape, Flight Patterns 2. Concept’s remix of “Throw It Up” is now available wherever music can be streamed.
