Canadian hip-hop It-Bro Cadence Weapon, known for his mutant blend of electro-polished old school psychedelic rap (right?), is getting his back scratched by fellow Canuck Grimes after sampling her song “Eight” on his forthcoming album Hope in Dirt City.
Grimes’ remix of “Conditioning” strips it down, smooths it out, and trips it up with plenty of layered ethereals. While the original pays due homage to golden-age hip hop with overfed bass lines to steady your head nod, Grimes’ remix lets the bottom fall out and the center shift (in the best way).
