In honour of the 20th anniversary of Eminem’s debut album Infinite, Slim Shady’s loyal collaborators, the Bass Brothers, have released a documentary called Partners In Rhyme: The True Story of Infinite showing the making of the album.
The documentary includes footage of Eminem’s recording process and interviews to tell the story of Infinite’s existence. The Bass Brothers recently spoke about the impact it would serve in a Rolling Stone interview.
“The songwriting is amazing back then,” Jeff Bass stated. “It’s like any artist just starting out. If you ever listen to Michael Jackson before he was Michael Jackson or Prince, they were younger-sounding, but you can tell there’s something there. Obviously, the fans who will purchase this particular project will get it. They’ll understand why. When I hear Eminem from 20 years ago, I can hear Eminem today. I can hear the nuances in his tone, and his rhythm was insane, and this is him starting out as a kid. We recognized that there was something there that was special. Obviously the world ended up agreeing with what we were feeling.”
As you can tell, the Bass Brothers are just as passionate about the project now as they were back then, thus decided to create a remixed version of the LP using live instruments instead of samples. The release date for this has not yet been confirmed, but will be available for digital download and on 7-inch limited edition singles.
Eminem recently dropped a new politically-charged track dissing Trump called “Campaign Speech”, which you can check out here.
