“Duel of the Iron Mics” reinterprets the classic album cut from Genius/GZA’s Wu-Tang debut “Liquid Swords." - “Bring Da Ruckus” offers an imaginative revision of the powerhouse opening track on Wu-Tang Clan’s debut LP “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)”

El Michels Affair’s leader and namesake Leon Michels is a renowned producer, songwriter, and instrumentalist known for his work with Adele, Beyonce & Jay-Z, Lana Del Rey, and Black Thought. After scoring a surprise hit in 2006’s red-hot 7” funk market with their cover of “C.R.E.A.M.,” El Michels Affair quickly turned around another smash 7” double-single of re-imagined takes of the Wu-Tang Clan. “Duel of the Iron Mics” sees the hypnotic piano hook of the “Liquid Swords”-classic elevated to intriguing heights with dramatic strings and Catch the blast of a hype version on the b-side, where “Bring Da Ruckus” is brought to life in imaginative ways not hinted at on the bulletproof original. 

The raw sample stabs and sub-bass of the stripped-down Wu-Tang stunner are replaced with mind-bending bass notes, and the re-played organ hook turned way up. Both of these tracks would eventually feature prominently on El Michels Affair’s landmark LP “Enter the 37th Chamber,” celebrating its 15th Anniversary in 2024.
