A month ago I noted that “a lot of Mustard's Ratchet & B tracks sound like slowed-down house, slowed-down garage”

I knew there were more examples than the Teefli “24 Hours” and Ty Dolla’s “Paranoid”. And here’s FACT pointing out a couple of other examples  of Mustard’s yen for  recycling early 90s dance licks:

Jeremih’s “Don’t Tell Em”, “interpolates Snap!’s 1992 hit “Rhythm Is A Dancer”” while Kid Ink & Chris Brown’s “Show Me” "flips Robin S’s “Show Me Love”"


Must say though kinda wish M would knock it off, because house slowed down sounds....  a bit torpid....  the frisk and the bounce quelled

but perhaps that feel of enervated suspension suits whatever chemicals the targeted club audience are vibing under...  

actually I'm coming round to it - it creates this subdued mood of depressive hedonism....
