The Extremities – Sour Times Up [Video]

Toronto, ON – Our friends over at the Come Up Show just hit us up to let us know that they had premiered a super dope video from The Extremities duo (Fresh Kils and Uncle Fester). The Extremities put together a fresh duo MPC and turntable routine entitled “Sour Times Up,” that blends up Portishead and O.C. More specifically, this joint mixes Portishead’s “Strangers” and “Sour Times” (which is a personal angst-ridden childhood favourite of mine) with “Time’s Up” by O.C. Fresh Kils takes on the MPC and Uncle Fester spins the tables.

This routine comes to us as The Extremities gear up to head out on a U.S. tour in support of their latest EP entitled Instruments (which you can download here). Unrelated side-note: today is Fresh Kils’ birthday. So go wish the homie a good one. Do it. And check the video after the jump.

The Extremities launched another duo routine back in July entitled “Check Your Led,” which blended Led Zeppelin with The Beastie Boys. I gotta say: watching these two go at it reminds me of watching DJ Maseo (De La Soul) and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest) do their duo DJ act. Kils and Fester don’t even need to look at each other – they just have this eerie producer bro bond that keeps their jams aligned. It almost looks like a choreographed dance routine. That’s how on-point their routines are.
