This is a flyer from about two years ago, when we were still doing Mister Saturday Night at Santos. Why do we post it now, you may ask?
On that particular night, The Egyptian Lover, who I’d hipped to KDJ’s epic, then unreleased song ‘Freeki MF’, in this pre-party interview, came downstairs during Moodymann’s set and asked him if he’d brought it with him. Turns out Kenny had left the record at home.
The rest is history: Egypt plugged in his 808, dropped a beat, and they did an impromptu rendition on the spot. Too dark for video cameras, the moment only lived on in the minds of people who were at the party, but it inspired Moody and Egypt to link up and collaborate. Today, that collaboration is finally seeing the light of day.
