It’s a good time to be a Wu-Tang Clan fan. First, El Michels Affair released Enter The 37th Chamber, a full-band instrumental re-imagination of the Wu-Tang Clan’s Enter the Wu Tang (36 Chambers) along with a random smattering of Wu classics, and now this innovative cult hit is getting a remix treatment all of it’s own. URB.com, Fat Beats, and Audible Treats are collaborating to present Enter The 38th Chamber, a remix series that finds a crew of elite emcees riding the rhythms of El Michels’ down and dusty soul instrumentals. Appearances by Diamond District, Del The Funky Homosapien, A-Plus of Souls of Mischief, Kam Moye, Nightclubber Lang of Boom Bap Project, Sandpeople, Von Pea of Tanya Morgan, and many more will add layers of lyricism to El Michels’ signature funk, making it a complete and compelling package for all listeners.

The newest track from the project finds Oakland’s finest, Del The Funky Homosapien, laying his lyrical stylings over Wu-Tang’s “Bring Da Ruckus.” Remaking a classic is no small feat, and remaking a remake can bring along a whole new set of challenges, but Del says he wanted to bring “more fire” to the song and also to expand listeners’ perceptions of his lyrical range. Call it a remix, but there’s something familiar about hearing Del’s cadence over El Michel’s smooth RZA reinterpretation. As he tackles the dusty-soulified version of “Bring Da Ruckus,” Del drops metaphors, shows off his mathematical dexterity, and holds back no poetic punches, all in an effort to “keep it real funky for you turkeys and diamond head buzzards.” Mission accomplished, Del.
