Image: 1608618 With the full length, Return To The 37th Chamber dropping April 14th, El Michels
Affair releases another flawless two sider to hold us over.
Side A’s cover of Tearz is as much an homage to the Wendy Rene sample as it
is to the Wu-Tang Clan track.
The song starts as a glazed over cover of "after laughter, comes tears" with
Shannon Wise of The Shacks singing Wendy Rene's timeless mantra. Halfway
through, the mood dramatically shifts and the drums and organ that drive the
original RZA sample, take over. A dubbed out Lee Fields taps in like only he can,
and the song spirals into outer space.
Side B finds EMA dipping into the deeper side of the Wu catalog with Raekwon’s
Verbal Intercourse. Mixing the grimy, gritty production aesthetic of the original
with elements of dubbed out reggae, El Michels Affair once again pushes the
definition of a “cover” and truly makes it a tune of their own. Available from 24.02.2017
