Beardyman - OH!/Smell The Vibe

Beardyman feat. Foreign Beggars
OH! / Smell The Vibe
Sunday Best Recordings (UK)
Beardyman has announced the release of 'Oh!' featuring Foreign Beggars – the 2nd single to be taken from 'I Done A Album' – and it's b-side 'Smell The Vibe'.

'Oh!' is a track that is Ragga mixed with Bhangra ? Of course! Why not? A stand-out track from Beardyman’s debut LP as it is the only one which features any voices other than Beardyman’s own and who better than Foreign Beggars? A long-time coming, this collaboration has been executed perfectly.

B-side 'Smell The Vibe' – Beardyman’s love of 90s hip-hop and the native tongues movement specifically, is brought into sharp relief in this bafflingly accurate rendering of what would appear at first listen to be an undiscovered A Tribe Called Quest track. Ali Shaheed Mohamed’s production and Q-Tip’s voice are recreated with astonishing attention to detail.

Also included on the single release is a package of top notch remixes from Duke Dumont, Trojan Sound System, JFB, Low Fro and Sunday Best.
