i don’t know what it is, but i have been downright addicted to some space age sounding shit lately. i’ve been listening to a bunch of DJs to an almost unnatural degree, assuming such a thing is possible. Of particular interest of late have been Flying Lotus, The Gaslamp Killer, Madlib and the incomparable J Dilla. As luck would have it, a couple of those cats are on the latest DOOM joint, the Gazzillion Ear EP.
Unfortunately, it hasn’t actually dropped yet and i still need to get my hands on the full thing, but thanks to the wonderful Interwebs, i’ve been able to track down a couple of the tracks, for free, no less. And what kind of mp3 blogger would i be if i didn’t share the spoils with you lazy bastards? Seriously, you can start giving back at any time now. If anyone wants to start giving me free Pro Tools lessons, i’m more than willing to call us even.
Back to the remixes, though. Of course, there’s the original, complete with beats provided by the late, great J. Dilla. Originally, there was only that and the Thom Yorke’s spooky version that’s been floating around for months. Now, though, for the price of your email address, you can get a version that isn’t even on the EP, by none other than Madlib himself with an intro by Kayne West.
There are a couple more versions on the actual EP, plus a bonus beat, but, as previously mentioned, i’m afraid i can’t tell you anything about those. i have little doubt, however, that they are quite villainous, and what more do we need than that?
