Chef’s Plate – Whoomp There It Is (Remix) [Audio]

Toronto, ONOriginally posted June 23, 2014 – Two of our favourite T-Dot producers – Junia-T and LordQuest – have teamed up to form the Chef’s Plate duo. And they just hit us with their second release; this soulful viber of a remix of Tag Team’s “Whoomp There It Is.”

Check the audio below, and make sure you peep the duo’s first release, “OG Bobby Johnson (Remix),” over here. Also, shout-out to Wolf J for keeping that cover art all kinds of fresh.


Chef’s Plate - Whoomp There It Is (Remix) [Audio] -

As individual producers, JT and LQ are both all about going outside of the box and working the music to their respective likings. They’re not about hopping on the hip-hop bandwagon. They’ve been knee-deep in the scene, lately. And they’ve been setting the standard for all the other cats. You may recall LordQuest actually did some work on ScHoolboy Q’s recent monstrous Oxymoron album. And love it or hate it; that project helped set the general direction for 2014 hip-hop.

So when LordQuest and Junia-T get together, they get downright experimental – a sound that supposedly ventures in the realm of “future bass.” Honestly? I’d be perfectly content just saying that their sound IS the future. And what’s more – this is but one of many releases slated to drop this summer from Chef’s Plate. I’m already getting giddy over here, just thinking about it.
