Delicious Vinyl’s RMXXOLOGY compilation is the brainchild of Peaches and label founder Rick Ross, and came about when the two decided to commission a handful of contemporary electronic music artists to remix classic hip-hop tracks from the likes of Masta Ace, Fatlip, and Young MC. Production duo The Philippians assumed the challenge of reworking The Pharcyde’s classic 1995 cut, “Runnin,” and here, the Echo Park-based team adds dreamy acoustic chords and distinctly electronic programming to the synths and beats found on the original. Though they played with the vocals to some extent, chopping and staggering the chorus, the lyrical coming-of-age message is retained throughout this modern reworking of the song.
