02/11/2012 Battles- White Electric (Shabazz Palaces Remix)
Although I admittedly am not familiar with the original Battles track (Gloss Drop is on my should-listen-to list), it is hard to ignore this remix from my favorite experimental hip-hop duo Shabazz Palaces. Recorded as part of a 4-part remix series for Battles, this Shabazz Palaces take has Butler laying out his usual dark and complex flow over the Battles instrumentation. Honestly, this track wouldn’t have been too out of place on Shabazz Palaces 2011 release Black Up. Order the series here.
