Apparently, All Things Go isn’t the only ATG out there. Today we’re giving some love to our doppelganger, ATG a.k.a Alexander the Great, a NYC producer who has been laying down beats along with the likes of Terminology, Kool G Rap, and Statik Selektah over the last few years. His first full length, The Susan Sarandon Story, was a critical success and kicked his career into gear this past January. Now he’s back with a remix of Danny Brown’s super breezy, “Grown Up.” The term “remix” barely applies here as ATG has transformed the old school beat into something more modern underneath Brown’s vocals. Alexander doesn’t just tweak the original; he reforms the melody, instrumentation and reworks the chord structure. ATG’s jazz roots come through in the instrumentation, headlined by heralding trumpets and airy guitars underneath.
ATG has more projects in the works with Reks and Fashawn, so be sure to keep an eye out for new tracks soon.
