Opposites attract, but do they? Isn’t it more about emphasizing the common grounds in what is essentially opposed? Leave it to Stuttgart-based DJ and producer Konstantin Sibold to discover that magical link in the chain, bringing Jay-Z to the stage with Minnie Riperton, if only for a few minutes. A veritable match made in paradise, literally. Sibold ingeniously samples Riperton’s silky “Inside My Love”, off her 1975 album “Adventures In Paradise”, then brings in Jay-Z slinging his iconic “I’ve got 99 problems, but a bitch ain’t one” verses, as Minnie repeatedly chimes in, “We should be-e-e, ooone!” It’s common sense people. Just follow the groove.
And if you were wondering, how to reproduce that catchy bongo rhythm at the start of Konstantin’s remix, you may want to check out the tutorial below.
