When it comes to a legend like DJ Premier, cosigns are hard to come by. There's no reason for Preemo to endorse anyone not fully worth his time—which makes Torii Wolf's upcoming album Flow Riiot an impressive anomaly. The entire project is produced by Premier, the first time he's teamed up with a female artist for a full project. “Torii has such a weird, wicked style,” Premier sadid. “It’s just very left field—reminiscent of a Björk or something like that; image-wise, there is no comparison."
For the "Shadows Crawl" remix, that wickedness is in full effect. Premier's signature scratches and clean samples provide a moody, haunting backdrop perfect for the song's subject matter: talking in your sleep. Rapsody adds a slick, bittersweet verse about the infidelity of dreams, an eerie complement to Wolf's breathy storytelling. "Rapsody adds an entirely new vibe to the record and fully emulated the concept of the song in her own unique way and voice," Wolf said. "Her flow tells a story so in line with what I wrote about." Listen to the remix below, and look out for Torii Wolf's Flow Riiot in the coming months.
