Erik Rico Remixes MH The Verb’s Single Traffic

Erik Rico has created a Rough Ragga Remix of MH the Verb’s “Traffic.” MH the Verb is a rapper from Philly and one of the curator’s of the ArtHouse95 collective. “Traffic” is the lead single from MH the Verb’s forthcoming collaborative album with Bus Crates called Afronaut. Of the remix Rico said;


[When creating the remix] I was just thinking in terms of it coming on at a party where everything played is hitting the 2/4 and then BOOM… You’re in the company of [Jay-Z’s] ‘Bam’ and ‘Lost Ones’, not to mention it’s such a departure from the original. It’s a more dance-able version, influenced by dancehall and afro-beat vibes. So I went into it thinking… ‘Ok, the original already has a straight 2/4 Dilla type of vibe’… so I took cues.” 

Watch the original video for “Traffic” below and enjoy Rico’s funky remix. MH the Verb and the Arthouse crew will start their East Coast tour tomorrow.
