?alt-J today announce REDUXER, a set of 11 incredible reinterpretations of songs from their award winning third album RELAXER, reimagined by a host of fans, friends and peers, including a globe-straddling cross-section of some of the world’s most influential and prolific hip hop artists and producers.
Putting their own indelible vocals on the songs are, amongst others, Grammy-nominated US hip hop high flyer GoldLink, platinum-certified Parisian rapper Lomepal, Berlin powerhouse Kontra K, Dublin-born breakthrough rapper Rejjie Snow, Australian auteur Tuka, Puerto Rican rapper PJ Sin Suela and London’s acclaimed Little Simz.
The project was first hinted at last month when Virginia Beach hip hop superstar Pusha T and LA synth pop polymath Twin Shadow both joined alt-J for a surprise performance of In Cold Blood on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, before swiftly releasing the studio version of the collaboration. “It’s no secret that we love and are influenced by hip-hop, and it’s always been a dream of ours to work with hip-hop artists in reimagining our music,” the band explained. “With REDUXER that dream has come true. We couldn’t be happier with the results. This album is truly global, featuring rappers and producers from all over the world. After a very long time in the making, we are stoked to share it with you all.”
A second track is debuted today, a new version of Deadcrush reworked by legendary producer The Alchemist and Latin American production powerhouse Trooko, and featuring the unmistakable vocals of hip hop iconoclast Danny Brown. Deadcrush (feat. Danny Brown) (Alchemist x Trooko Version) is available to stream and download everywhere and as an instant-grat now. REDUXER is available 28 September via Infectious Music and can be preordered now on limited white vinyl and CD.
