Gifted The Great – Downtown


Gifted The Great drops “Downtown”, a teaser from his upcoming project.

As a frequent collaborator with our very own RKZ, Gifted The Great lives up to his nom de plume. But this time, the UK producer is going it alone with his latest projected dedicated to the halcyon days of Motown. The Gift: ‘Volume One’ is a 9-track instrumental album and one of the cuts from the tape is Downtown, which samples Willie Hutch’s “Theme Of The Mack”. The result is something funky and hard hitting thanks to a deep bass groove and a varying rhythm that keeps sampled horns nicely in their place.

Stream it below and look out for the full release on Friday 22nd November.
