“Can’t Knock The Hustle,” the first single from the “Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em” EP by Spekulation, available February 29th.

“Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em” is a 6-track EP featuring instrumentals by Spekulation, composed entirely of samples from The Jason Parker Quartet’s upcoming album, “Five Leaves Left: A Tribute to Nick Drake.” These instrumentals are paired with classic lyrics by Jay-Z to form something altogether new, all the while paying homage to the traditions that come before.

Here’s the video:

Jason, this is phenomenal. It’s even better with the visual – I know that I HEAR more when I can SEE music being performed/created. It just tunes me into what is happening on another level entirely. That’s why I love live music. Those lady-vocals on your tracks? Wow. What a finish with that voice and sweet bass line flowing with each other.
