It was about 7 years ago that I was first introduced to the work of El-P. A friend who knew about my love for noisy industrial-laced production sent me a couple tracks off of Fantastic Damage. At the time I wasn’t really particularly into hip hop, but could still appreciate the production. Fast forward to present day and you’ll find my music library laced with indie rap, with El-P’s discography being among my favorites.
Run The Jewels (El-P and Killer Mike) released their latest single this week, and I couldn’t help but break out my production tools and take a stab at a remix. Bring the noise.
