It is possible that Music to Dali & Jay Z Lovers wouldn't even exist without Pete Rock. He is one of the main guys who merged hip hop and jazz, so yeah, "that's what I am talking about".
Both solo or along with C L Smooth, Pete Rock is the mind, the voice & the beats behind dope tracks such as "They reminisce over you", a must-listen for jazz rap fans and a true hip hop classic.
There are so many amazing tracks I could've chosen from Pete's discography, but I just wanted to avoid the obvious, to give a little love to a song that doesn't get enough recognition, and to praise some of Pete's recent productions - because yeah, he killed the 90's but he still makes great music until today.
I chose "That's what I am talking about", a cool track with a ridiculously sexy bass line, a sample of Brooklyn Dream's "Music, harmony & rhythm", and featuring R&B singer Rell.
This is a beautiful track in which you can appreciate the finesse of Pete Rock's production skills - no wonder he is considered one of the greatest.

About the curator: Ana Clara Ribeiro
Music, art and entertainment have always played a big role in the life of Ana Clara Ribeiro. She grew up in Gurupi (an inland city in Tocantins, the youngest State of Brazil), listening to all kinds of music, reading, writing, watching stuff and connecting them to her personal beliefs and other ideas she read about.
As she became a lawyer and a writer, all the topics to which she is constantly exposed continued to give her insights about life, people and the universe, through the lenses of art.
Nowadays, when she isn’t analyzing lawsuits or producing content about Law, Marketing, Business or Music, she is certainly doing something related to her various personal and professional projects, always to the sound of a playlist as eclectic as her life.
