The Sean-Touré Remix is a nice revisit to the recent classic ”See Hear” by recording artist Substantial, originally produced by Algorythm. The original song was sonicly and lyrically a masterpiece, portraying the ups and downs of life in Substantial’s hometown Baltimore, Maryland. Sean-Touré captures that classic 90′s east coast Boom Bap with his remix, adding new colors to the palette, while maintaining the integrity of the original painting.
The Sean-Toure’ Remix Video Project available as a free download Tuesday, October 29th.
Substantial’s album “Home Is Where The Art Is” available now.

Baltimore artist SUBSTANTIAL prepares to release a Jill Scott tribute project, entitled “Jackin’ Jill”, built by “Jackin” music from various Jill Scott releases. I call him an artist, not just an MC, because besides working well with words, ‘Substizzle‘ also drew the sketch which is the cover art. Intrigued by this new project based entirely on the work of Jill Scott, I had to get at my Plague brother and ask him a few questions.
GMS: How did the idea of a Jill Scott Tribute album come about?
SUBSTANTIAL: Back in 2011 when I had the cancer scare, I decided to work on a tribute album to Jill Scott. I figure, celebrate people while they are still here, you know? Jill Scott has always been one of my favorite artists. It’s been about two years since I had the preventative surgery and I’m ready to put out the music, as a free download of course.
GMS: What is the song “Golden Lady” about?
SUBSTANTIAL: It basically tells the story of how I was first introduced to Jill Scott’s music, and how it influenced me over the years.
For the album cut â€œResilientâ€ Substantial brings on Seattle producer and Bop Alloy partner Marcus D to provide a smoothed out, jazz infused remix.The track, originally produced by Eric Lau, is a testament to the strength it takes to claim your identity and walk your own path. The Marcus D jazz remix is a perfect fit for the reflective & uplifting declarations of Substantial.
