New Orleans drummer, producer Bettis of 3rd Degree Live and emcee, poet TheSeKondElement are at it again with a newly remixed version of “About to Begin.” Originally produced by New Orleans producer, poet Quest for TheSeKondElement’s The Kommencement LP, the song was covered by the duo for their verses and drums only album, The Korner of Ahmir & Hillman.
The newest version of the song, created as a reference for the arrangement of the live rendition, is now infused with fresh, power-driven drum arrangements by Bettis, as a sanguine and poetically tactful, TheSeKondElement (T2E) makes her way through the 1:43 min sequence.
Emphatically jazz, hip hop, poetry and percussion, The HUBRIS Tour, formed by solo artists TheSeKondElement, Bettis and BassMonsterTiff (former member of 3rd Degree Live), may have an EP up their sleeves in the near future. And as a lover of lyrical agility and instrumental veracity, whatever they have next will be in my possession and I hope the same goes for you.
