The Vancouver, BC-based Konrad OldMoney has made a name for himself with his production work as he’s worked with the likes of Afrikan Boy, the legendary Redman, Das Racist and others, as well as for his band Smokey Robotic. But interestingly enough, the guy is pretty busy – as most musicians tend to be – and he has another project, Filthy Romeo where he teams up with the Australian-born producer Unkle Ricky. And the project manages manages to employ elements of old school soul, drum ‘n’ bass, trap music and a bunch of other things.
Interestingly, the project is a mobile project, in which they only work on songs out of coffee shops across North America, to soak in the local ambiance and to push their creativity. Konrad OldMoney and Unkle Ricky worked on this slickly produced remix of Gil Scott-Heron’s “Song of the Wind” and their remix manages to retain the old school, soulfulness of the original while slickly pushing it towards trap music territory – and it’s done in an effortless, easy-going fashion.
