It's The Remix To Ratatat
When I was checking out the daily reads early this morning, there was an article in Pitchfork about genre-fucking band Ratatat dropping a remix album with a slew of hip-hop tracks against some of the group's signature electrock sounds. Thanks to the generous people on Soulseek, I was able to check it out, and I admit, it's pretty damn good. The majority of the songs feature Ratatat's eclectic instrumentals backing the lyrical rhymes of Kanye West, Dizzee, and Raekwon just to name a few. One of the highlights is a mashup of Jay-Z's "Sunshine" that features a funky bass line with some nicely thrown in handclaps, all somehow flowing seamlessly with Hova's lyrics. Speaking of mashups, I recommend you listen to Go Home Production's "A Slim McShady". It's sheer genius I tells ya. Well, I guess I won't go that far, but it definitely does a fine job at making Eminem listenable if not non-stop danceable.
