Artist: Skyzoo
Track: Strung Out (Small Professor Remix)
Producer: Small Professor
Album: The Strung Out Remixes EP (Inspired by The Foundation)

Released back in April, ‘mix-album’ The Foundation showcased German superproducer Shuko‘s work with an impressive lineup of hip-hop icons and underground buzzmakers.  Strung Out , Brooklyn emcee Skyzoo‘s contribution to the project, was recently overhauled by countless hopeful beatsmiths as part of a Coalmine Records-hosted remix challenge.  The wining entry in the “sampled”category came courtesy of up-and-coming producer Small Professor, who switched Shuko’s gritty instrumental for a lush, string-driven jazz-funk groove that keeps the old-school vibe, but adds a wistfully nostalgic flavor to Skyzoo’s hard-hitting, braggadocio-laced rhymes; though the tone is different, the end result could hardly feel more natural.  Fans can find this version of the cut, the winning “non-sampled” revamp (contributed by Brazilian producer Cabe), and more on the new, Foundation-inspired Strung Out Remixes EP, available now on iTunes.
