The days are getting shorter, school is starting, and pumpkin-flavored everything is everywhere. Before we say farewell to our favorite season, Austin, TX outfit Lance Herbstrong —producers Kamal Soliman and Bill Sarver and guitarist Peter DiStefano — bless us with a Big Shot Guest Mix fuelled by their leftfield reggae vibe.
The exclusive 18-track session boasts their debut original song “Ripped,” featuring hip-hop legend Big Daddy Kane on the m-i-c. The track was written for the same-named stoner film starring comedian Russell Peters (Last Comic Standing, The Jungle Book, Chef) and Faizon Love (Grow House, Black-ish, Elf) that hit theaters, iTunes and VOD in June.
Here’s what the guys had to say about the mix:
“Reggae will always be a pillar of the Lance Herbstrong sound. Some of our first remixes were based off old reggae classics, and each of our three albums contain at least one reggae track. Ever since we headlined the Austin Reggae Festival in 2013, we’ve wanted to fuse all of our reggae inspired remixes together into one continuous play. Our goal is to pay homage and respect to these originals while modernizing the sound for the future generation. And so, the day is finally here for us to share the Lance Herbstrong reggae vibration all in one seamless mix!
“Playing these songs live is always a highlight in the set for us. Also included in this special mix is our most recent collaboration with Big Daddy Kane on the song ‘Ripped.’ Plus, we’ve included a previously unreleased mashup of Slightly Stoopid’s smash hit ‘2 AM’ with Manu Negra’s classic ‘Long Long Nite.’ The 2 AM remix has never been released and has only been performed live a few times, most notably and for the first time at Stoopid’s destination festival in Mexico, Closer to the Sun.”
