The Extremities – F**k The Police [Video]
Toronto, ON – Every now and then, The Extremities duo (producer-DJs Fresh Kils and Uncle Fester) hit us with a brilliant live MPC and turntable routine. So I was geeked as f**k to find out that the duo delivered the goods – once again – with this dope new routine titled “F**k The Police.”
So let me break this all down for you: Producers and DJs too often get caught up behind the scenes while MCs take centre stage. This series gives due shine to the masterminds behind the beats and sounds of the music you take in.
It gives us a close-up look at a craft that often gets glazed over as Macbook musicianship. PSA: This is not Macbook musicianship. This is an MPC and turntable routine; your mind will be blown. The video was directed by Jawn Taboika (of 40oz Heroes). Check it after the jump.
Fester mans the turntables while Fresh Kils takes on the MPC (while repping a KOTD t-shirt – shout-out to KOTD, by the way).
These guys take it up a notch by giving each of their routines a theme. This particular routine is called “F**k The Police,” so OF COURSE it’s all about the police. The routine’s mashup track includes (obviously) the namesake “F**k Tha Police” by N.W.A, as well as “Roxanne” by – you guessed it – THE POLICE! This is actually so geeky and I love it so much. All praises due to The Extremities!
