The legendary DJ Premier has released the video for his new single, “My Space Baby,” a collaboration with Nashville’s electro-indie duo Cherub (Jordan Kelley & Jason Huber). The song is out via his new imprint TTT (To The Top) and explores a different lane than many die-hard Preemo fans might be used to, delivery a more pop/mainstream sound. It will be interesting to see how this offering is received by his fan base. You can check the video out in full below.
“Jordan and I were introduced over the phone after my manager put me on to their music. This was back in 2014 while I was on the PRhyme Tour during our stop in Houston. I saw their video for “Doses and Mimosas” and immediately knew that like me, they are crazy in the head; so I totally got it. They are self-produced, so they do not use outside producers and I was impressed with how much Jordan knew about Gang Starr’s history and my career, so we linked up after my tour ended. His partner, Jason, is very skillful on a few instruments and he looks like a 70’s Porn Star. Our vibe was instant! We did a demo on the first day in the studio, but no lyrics came to mind. On day two, I dug for samples and I found this incredible sample called “Dark Side Of Religion” by Sensational Fix and it spoke to us immediately
(don’t worry the sample is cleared)! I added my drums, bass, keys and scratches and we got another winner in the books. A perfect match!”
