If you’re not in Japan this month, you might not be able to catch DJ Premier’s new five-piece band in the flesh. Thanks to some cameras in the new studio though, you can. Premo is on the cuts with a brass, drums, and keys section. Some vocals from The Notorious B.I.G., Lil Fame, and a Lessons record by Steinski are scratched up with style, while Heads can hear instrumented interpolations by Biggie, KRS-One, and Gang Starr.

#BonusBeat: This might make you want to pull out some Buckshot Lefonque’s 1994 self-titled LP:
