1990 - Eric B & Rakim - Let The Rhythm Hit Em (Chris Read Remix)

This remix of Eric B & Rakim’s ‘Let The Rhythm Hit Em’ originally appeared on the 2009 remix compilation ‘Diary 1.5: Twenty Years of the Remix’ and was subsequently featured as a bonus track on the Classic Material Edition #4 mix CD. As with all remixes from the Diary collection, the production style owes something to popular production styles of the day. In the this instance I took some inspiration from early Showbiz productions, particularly with regards to the jazzy bass groove and those trademark raspy horns.
