Heads need to be up on Paul Nice. The Upstate New York veteran producer cut his teeth in Hip-Hop making breakbeat/battle-break records a la 45 King and DJ Rectangle. In the nearly 25 years since, Paul has accrued production credits with the likes of Biz Markie, Masta Ace, Cali Agents, and the late Guru, among many others. A master of sniffin’ out amazing loops, Paul gets busy on mixtapes and makes cohesive remix projects that Heads still champion.

Such is the case with “The Sweetest Blend.” Here, the Albany-based DJ/producer takes Sade’s 1985 smash “The Sweetest Taboo” on vinyl, and lays out his mixer, and two other Technics 1200s to make a classically-approached blend. Here, he makes an audio journey featuring G-Unit, Jadakiss, and some Neptunes percussion. Ron G and Kid Capri will be proud…

All of this is done live, by the way, with no post-production.
