We loved the return of Mr. Lif and Akrobatik to the Perceptionists project last year. Their album, Resolution, was definitely a highlight for us. While they have previously taken huge breaks between releases, they're already back with new music. The duo decided to "rough the edges up" on their previous release, and paired with producer Paten Locke to do so. The result will be the remix EP, Low Resolution: The Paten Locke Remixes. There will be one new track, which we can already listen to. "Bait" is definitely rougher than anything on Resolution. It's a stripped down song that's about as far away from today's mainstream rap as you can get and is a relic from the days where hip hop was rough and not always pleasant to listen to. I personally don't usually have any interest in repackaged remix albums, but this one I'll be waiting for.
You can listen to "Bait" below. Low Resolution: The Paten Locke Remixes will be out August 10. You can pre-order a copy via Bandcamp.
