El-P began tweeting links to his new BandCamp page the other day as a means of further spreading out the leaks from his upcoming instrumental opus, Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3. But the Brooklyn-based rapper/producer apparently wanted to do more than just increase the buzz for his latest project. He just posted a lost demo of I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead‘s highlight “EMG.” If nothing else, it’s kind of crazy to hear how this scrapped version, which bounces on a funky groove, morphed into the speaker-crushing mayhem of the final take. Although, this has me wondering what the rest of the demos for ISYWD sounded like. Any chance we’ll hear those, too, El?
Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3 is due out Aug. 3.
