Terrace Martin Remixes Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright”

Mass Appeal Issue 56 cover star Kendrick Lamar‘s most ambitious effort to date is easily To Pimp A Butterfly, as he incorporated a great deal of live instrumentation to bring forth a refreshing fusion of genres that’s become increasingly rare in hip hop. One of the integral figures behind the scenes of the album was undoubtedly Los Angeles’ very own Terrace Martin. He not only plays saxophone alongside Kamasi Washington, but helped write and produce several TPAB tracks, including President Obama’s favorite song of the year, “How Much A Dollar Cost.” Judging by the amount of nominations To Pimp A Butterfly has received, it is safe to say this man will have a GRAMMY to take home this year. Acts like OverDoz. have even commented on his charisma and reliability for that modern G-funk sound.

With that said, Terrace’s access to To Pimp A Butterfly and its stems is far more exclusive than anyone else attempting to remix tracks from this album. Therefore, it was an inevitable pleasure to see Terrace work his magic on a remix to “Alright,” one of the more prolific records he helped create. Adding additional horns, keys, and edits to this lead single he initially only played sax on, Terrace Martin’s “Alright (II)” is another excellent display of his musical virtuosity. Hit the player below to stream this aurally pleasing remix to the Pharrell Williams and Sounwave-produced banger.
