Allow me to demonstrate the skill of Shaolin. El Michels Affair's long-awaited follow up to Enter The 37th Chamber is finally here! Since the cult favorite release of the first full length of live Wu-Tang covers in 2009, EMA has only sharpened their skills playing on numerous classics from the likes of Lee Fields, The Arcs, The Shacks and many more. Now with Return To The 37th Chamber, the Brooklyn band is back and stronger than ever, tackling deeper cuts from the Wu-Tang discography. Peep the steez on their razor sharp cover of ODB's "Snakes," Raekwon's "Verbal Intercourse," or "Shaolin Brew," taken from the Wu's contribution to the St. Ides series of hip-hop commercials. Of course they still hit the classics with ease and precision, as heard on "4th Chamber" and the all-time Wu anthem "Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthin' To F Wit." They've even called in some of the Big Crown gang to throw a helping hand with vocal duties - Lee Fields on "Snakes" and Shannon Wise of The Shacks on "Tearz." Another set of certified bangers from El Michels Affair! Comes housed in one of three covers (randomly shipped) featuring hand-painted artwork by Ghanaian Mobile Cinema legends Heavy J and Stroger. Recommended.
