Positive K – A Good Combination (Kan Kick Remix) 1995


I first heard this version on a random remix compilation that was posted on WYDU in ’07. I had the song in constant rotation but I never knew where it was from and when it was made. Since I knew that it wasn’t on Positive K’s first album The Skills Dat Pay Da Bills“, I though to myself, could he had released it on 12”.. maybe in ’95? I tried to do some research but nothing came out. A couple months after that, a Positive K compilation Back to the Old School” was released on CD. I immediately saw “A Good Combination” on the tracklist. Once I got my hands on the CD, I immediately skipped to the track, and guess what? It wasn’t the same version that I knew. I was really dissapointed even though I had just heard the original ’89 version. So after that, I though that it was probably just a homegrown remix. Finally, a couple weeks ago, I found that “remix” version on youtube labeled as the Kan Kick Remix. It was from Side B of DJ Babu’s Comprehension Mixtape from 1995. I immediately went to download it and when i heard it, all that searching was finally over. I cut the part from Side B and labeled it as a single mp3. It was in a way better quality than the one I had way back.. I can’t even listen to the original when I hear this remix. The original seems too plain compared to the Kan Kick version.

    Kan Kick is a pretty dope producer.
    This remix is effin great.
    I put it on CD awhile ago and had it blasting for like a week or two.
    Great remix.
    The original is a classic to me, though.

    I came across this somehow about 9 months ago, and it proceeded to rule my life for a couple months. I think this version of the song is magnificent. One of my favorite songs, up there with "Doomsday" and "Diamonds and Wood." The original is a bit clunky to me, and I didn't realize it until I heard this version. This song is fucking beautiful the way Kan Kick flipped it. Pos' rhymes are invigorated over it too – he sounds way better. It's like peanut butter and bananas. You don't know how great it is until the flavors merge, and you're left with some next shit that you were not prepared for.
