Olivier is back on Say What? with his warm, trademarked style and kicks thing off with the title track which is literally a sample-fest ranging from old school snippets to breaks to chopped MC verses. “Educate Yourself” is a deeper affair, with classic chords bringing in the good vibes and the mandatory spoken word passage adding to the whole atmosphere. “Double Tap” continues in the same vein, with even more emphasis on the Housey chords and subtle layers of drums paving the way for distant, nostalgic vocal snippets.
