This past Tuesday we shined the spotlight on Time Machine and their jam The Unfortunate Twist featuring Greg Nice off of their new album Life is Expensive. Our friend Adam Wallenta pointed out this one to us, so hat tip to you, sir.
Time Machine is part of the indie hip-hop scene with emcees Biscuit and Jet Set Jay, and DJ / Producer Mekalek. They also recently did remixes of MIA and Kid Sister/Janet Jackson that have been getting a lot of play.
The fun, throwback cartoon vibe and the heavy drums and rich melodies make it a winner for us. And it's awesome to see Greg Nice show up. For those of you too young to remember, Greg Nice was part of Nice 'n Smooth, one of the central hip hop duos of the late 80's and early 90's. Check out a classic clip of Nice 'n Smooth performing with Gangstarr on Yo! MTV Raps:
