Produced by Koushik

Koushik is no stranger to the Now-Again Records catalog. His “Cold Beats” EP, featuring Percee P and based around samples from the Cold Heat compilation (NA 5017), contained so many raw interpretations of those heavy funk skillets that we had to give him access to the catalog to see what he could cook up next.

Out of the frying pan, into the freezer, then, with Cold Treats. Here Koushik crafts a range of beats that range from horn-driven hip hop (courtesy of The Stark Reality) to bonus beat madness to new takes on the four on the floor disco rhythms of the Record Player… and beyond.

Produced by Koushik Ghosh for Beats By The Kilo

Two of Stones Throw’s finest collaborate on this exclusive mega-mix of beats and samples taken from last year’s Cold Heat Vol. 1 compilation – the definitive anthology on Now-Again Records of heavy funk rarities originating between 1968 and 1974. Through the wizardry of cut-and-paste, Koushik’s mega-mix of drum-break-heavy funk provides the kind of fast-paced beats where the legendary Percee P feels right at home. The celebrated O.G. Bronx MC – aka the Rhyme Inspector – exhibits his trademark verbal gymnastics over Koushik’s expert mixing, and the results are ice cold. In addition to the “Cold Beats” mega-mix (a vocal version with Percee rhyming plus an instrumental), the two sides include several other bonus beats and interludes, as well as a “drumapella.” As the second Cold Heat 12-inch in a series of 2 (following J.Rocc’s mega-mix NA5021), this is the kind of team-up you’ll only find on Now-Again.
