Kamakazee "Snakes" (1997)

File this one under "dope Marly Marl beats". Don't know Kamakazee's past or future, but thanks to Marley Marl, they had a niice 12" in '97:



This beat is simple, but in all the right ways. A raw break fueled by a brief blast of sound. Seemingly random "blip" noise. The Perfect Vocal Sample chorus. All that remains is for Kamakazee to avoid shitting on the track, and they're definately up to it. Nothing quotable, but definately another track to put on that "Snakes, Crabs and Backstabbers" mixtape you've been working on.

The B-side - "Spread It(remix)" - is a solid track, again, for similar reasons: Marly's production and a raw vocal sample (in this case, Redman). Includes vocal and instrumental for both cuts.

[UPDATE, 7/14: Re-archived, re-upped file]
