remixes a West Coast hip-hop classic into a modern dose of futurism with his Refix of The Pharcyde
‘s “Runnin’.” This is a perfect teaser as we wait for another project from the San Diego creative. AbJo focuses on the chorus, removing the verses and a lot of the additional instrumentation to create a mellow groove that is light on the palate. Sharp percussion and ambient, layered synthesizers place The Pharcyde’s iconic chorus in an entirely new context. While the original was centered in jazz and classic hip-hop influences, this version may push the status quo enough to pull in listeners who haven’t even heard of The Pharcyde in the first place.
