Yeah. Pusha T seems to be breaking out nowadays, seem him a fair bit lately.
Pusha T's been around since at least 2002. It's only in the past couple of years that he's been solo.
I've not heard of him until late, but every since I did for the first time, I've seen him around quite a bit.
Obviously, Pusha T's been on basically everything GOOD Music-related ever since the "GOOD Friday" stuff which preceded Kanye West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy", so that's how the world has come to know him. Before all that, he was a member of a rap duo called Clipse, but I've never checked out any of that stuff.
Lord Willin' and Hell Hath No Fury. Listen to either of these to rectify that mistake.
He's been active since 1992 actually. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pusha_T
Don't forget Pusha T was in Justin Timberlake's "Like I Love You"
God dammit. You're making me think I've heard every song from/with Pusha T without realizing.
Wow, the album cover *-*
The cover reminds a bit of this one:
From the songs I listened to, Powerless, Roads Untraveled, and Lost in the Echo were the only songs I really enjoyed. And I don't even like EDM, so that's pretty good that I enjoyed those remixes.
I'm not excpecting reanimation caliber remixes but oh well
That's ok, because I don't think anyone is expecting Reanimation style remixes, and if they are, they shouldn't be. I think the remixes that I have heard so far from Recharged are great. I also can't wait to hear the rest, especially Mike's remixes, as well as that Ryu verse.
Do we know what time the preorder starts for Recharged?
I just hope these new ones will be actual reimaginings/reinterpretations, not merely remixes. Because that's what really made Reanimation great.
I believe that they've made it fairly clear with "Living Things: Remixed" that that will not be the case.
Personally, I'd say that that kind of magic or whatever has been lost forever.
The last trace of something Reanimation-esque was the GBC Wretches And Kings remix.
I think Troublemaker's rmx of "Roads Untraveled" comes kind of close too
Mike's always liked to keep himself occupied by taking on literally every task he can at once. Back in those days, I'd reckon there was much less on his plate (still more than the rest of the band) so he had "time" to put a lot of effort into Reanimation. I think that now, with all the side projects, producing, album making, film scoring, philanthropy, media-related events, and so on, there's no way he can put that same effort into a remix album.
This all makes good sense.
But I think that there's also a unique and specific sound or vibe on that album that has never been revisited and which most of us can't even put into words. Even if the band produced a remix album which approached the quality present on "Reanimation", I don't think that we'd actually be able to recognise it as such now because of that. The bar really has been set impossibly high and the nostalgia's really heavy to boot.
