Harry Potter (Remix) by Guante + Big Cats! (featuring Chantz)

Tru Ruts/Speakeasy Records presents a FREE download of the remixed/re-worked “Harry Potter,” a song that finds emcees Guante and Chantz using the book/film series as a metaphor for smashing down the walls of the literary/musical/artistic canon.  Over a brooding, propulsive Big Cats! beat, the two rappers touch on hip hop, culture and much more, all the while dropping punchlines that play off of the book’s many characters and ideas.  Fresh off their appearance at Soundset ’09, Guante & Big Cats! are dropping this song for free as an appetizer to their upcoming zombie-superhero-love-story, the concept album “An Unwelcome Guest.”

Above the Fold called Guante & Big Cats! the Twin Cities’ best up-and-coming MC and producer, respectively. Their first release as a duo, a seven-track EP was released through respected indie label Tru Ruts/Speakeasy Records entitled “Start a Fire”. Guante is City Pages“Artists of the Year,” URB Magazine’s “Next 1000,” an Independent Music Awards nominee and a CMJ Spotlight Artist for 2009. Producer Big Cats!, fresh off of producing Sage Francis’ “Black Out on White Night,” as well as his own critically-acclaimed instrumental hip hop album “Sleep Tapes,” is in top form as well. His production is melancholy, multi-layered and cinematic; a definite stylistic departure from the standard TC hip hop sound. At only seventeen, rising emcee, Chantz, has shared the stage with such noted artists as MC Lyte, Naughty by Nature, I Self Devine, Brother Ali, One Be Lo, Invincible and more. He recently signed with Tru Ruts/Speakeasy Records, and will be releasing his second album this Summer/Fall.
