Ritchcraft – Say It Ain’t So EP

Say It Ain't So

I posted one of Ritchcraft’s remixes and promised there would be an EP when he finished his weekly series. Well, the time has come to unleash it!

The Nova Scotia, Canada producer’s heavy work culminates in Say It Ain’t So, a 12-track EP with remixed verses from Jay-Z, Nas, The Roots, AZ, Saigon, plus original cuts from Halifax reps Kayo, CooLEra and even the man Ritchcraft himself.

My personal favorites are “Whose World Is This,” a reinterpretation of Nasir’s “The World Is Yours” with its groovin’ bassline & sweet vocal flip and AZ’s “The Come Up” as the verses flow over a break-beat and orchestral strings.

You can download the full EP at the Bandcamp link below, and feel free to hit me or Ritch up and let us know what you think. Enjoy!

AZ – The Come Up (Ritchcraft Remix) [Video]

It’s no easy task to remake a DJ Premier-produced record, but that’s exactly what Ritchcraft recently attempted.

For the fourth installment of his Tuesday remix series, the Nova Scotia, Canada producer flipped AZ’s “The Come Up” from 2005’s A.W.O.L. The result is a brand new feel to the song, equipped with intense strings and snapping snares.

Be on the lookout for more Ritchcraft remixes, culminating in a downloadable EP when the series is finished. Check out his Vimeo page for more fresh remixes.

I’ve included the original below for comparison’s sake, so feel free to hit the comment section with your thoughts.

Shouts to the man himself and Sadie for the video, Enjoy!
