Video: ‘Ain’t That Peculiar’ – Marvin Gaye Remix by OddiseePosted By Rebecca Florence | 10-May-2012
Ahead of his highly anticipated album People Hear What They See (which drops on June 12th – pre order here) Oddisee has released a re-imagining of Marvin Gaye’s Ain’t That Peculiar - which along with its edited video clip of the long-legged legend is… one of the best tracks I’ve heard this year. Set to an updated beat, with some of Oddisee’s own thought provoking verses, he breathes life into a classic.
Of the album, the understated Oddisee – who toured Australia earlier this year – says:
“This album is about influence, inspiration, perception & reality. Every song was written in an outside environment, so that I could observe the subjects that would become my subject matter. All too often in Hip Hop, reality is limited to that of the artists own, actual experiences. People Hear What They See is my attempt to liberate the MC from those constraints…”
The remix is a single taken from his also-upcoming free to download Odd Renditions EP which drops on May 15th.
