My old DMA crew mate Dmote has been amazing me with these latest Shank pieces. He adopted NYC as his home and has been able to immerse himself further than the average punter in the history of NYC style traditions. It's allowed him as far as I see it to re-interpret and make it his own in an informed and considered way. They are not some common retro mix and match misuse of history. The rhythm of these pieces are superb. Faaarrresh!
