Forgotten Treasure: Portishead remix of Gravediggaz’ “Nowhere to Run”

I thought that since Portishead are in Montreal tonight for their show I’d make a “forgotten treasure” pick from one of their long lost gems. Althought they only put out 3 records in 15 years there are tons and tons of Portishead remixes you should know about if you are a fan of the P!

This is one from ’94 of Gravediggaz‘s (RZA’s brief excursion into horror-rap) “Nowhere to Run”. The remix work is pretty simple but it’s still the perfect meeting of the Bristol and NYC sounds of the early 90′s.

    I never thought of Maxinquaye as being slept-on. It’s usually listed aside Blue Lines (or Mezzanine) and Dummy as one of the landmark albums of the mid to late ’90s trip hop eras. And for good reason. Maxinquaye is so good that Tricky never made another album that sounded as good, from front to back.
