WATCH DJ PREMIER & THE BADDER BAND’S TINY DESK CONCERT WITH NPR [VIDEO]

Three-time Grammy winner DJ Premier, one of the definitive architects of New York hip-hop, brought a new type of life to NPR’s Tiny Desk: their first concert helmed by a DJ.

A packed house of head-nodding journalists grooved through their lunch hour to a nine-song medley of iconic Premier productions while decompressing from the unrelenting grind of the news cycle. The set list rested on the undeniable footprint of Preemo’s classics, but this was more than just another DJ mix. His touring outfit, The Badder Band, overlaid Premier’s blends with an undulating electric bass courtesy of Brady Watt, a steady accent on the one from drummer Lenny Reece and boisterous horns from Mark Williams and Jonathan Powell.

But it was Premier who remained front-and-center, commanding the crowd like a true party rocker. With throwbacks ranging from Gangstarr’s “Step into the Arena” to an amped rendition of Jeru The Damaja’s “Da Bitches,” embellished by The Badder’s jazzy horns, Preemo concluded the set with a “Moment of Truth,” featuring the exalted rhymes of his posthumous Gangstarr partner, Guru.

Tiny Desk concerts are short by design, so naturally the format could barely scratch the surface of Premier’s vault of street anthems, done for the likes of the Notorious B.I.G., JAY-Z, Nas, Kanye West, Big L, M.O.P., Mos Def, Group Home, Jeru the Damaja, AZ, Snoop Dogg, and many more. Even after a career spanning almost three decades, the man born Christopher Martin has managed to stay authentic to his analog grit and sample-chopping integrity, as if he were still an underdog.

TORII WOLF FEAT. MACKLEMORE & DJ PREMIER – FREE

Torii Wolf and DJ Premier’s collaborative album Flow Riiot is drawing near and the duo are joined by Macklemore for the single “Free.”

The song tackles the battle we face every day to be our authentic selves and a reminder that our freedom comes from within and how we hold the key to how “Free” we really are.

“‘Free’ is a special tune. It’s very relatable,” Wold told Complex about the King of Chill produced song. “True freedom comes from within; it’s the battle we face each day with our own identity. Having the confidence to be comfortable in our skin and with who we are; and being our true authentic selves. I find the content of someone else’s mind most attractive.

“Feeling free in my gender fluidity and the way I connect with other humans is vital to my being. To feel safe in outwardly expressing what it is that ignites a spark in me can be very challenging in the society we live in. However, it’s only harder when I try and resist it. It feels very important for me to lead by example in sharing with others how we are in control of our own destiny. To be in touch with ourselves in knowing what we want, who we are and what feels good is such a gift. It radiates and it is very liberating. Allowing your spirit to shine can be contagious and that freedom from within is the light that we all need.”

BRADY WATT FEAT. CLIFFLIGHT – ROOTS AROUND MY RIBCAGE [VIDEO]

Brady Watt is part of DJ Premier’s The Badder Band and you may have heard him rocking the bass on Talib Kweli and Styles P’s The Seven EP.

Today, Brady releases the visual for the second single, “Roots Around My Ribcage” f/ Clifflight from his forthcoming To Get Back Home album. “I was going for uptempo/feel good with “Roots Around My Ribcage,” but still hard.  My roots are in hip-hop, so the drums always have to be knocking” Brady commented.  “I’m as much a fan heavy musicality as I am of simplicity and great songwriting; so I try to do both.  The greats all achieve a balance of this.”
