“The Notorious xx”

    Wasn’t it only a matter of time before somebody did it? The xx‘s debut album has been remixed and mashed-up and run through the meat grinder a thousand times since its 2009 release. Pairing their spacious, gloomy sound with the Notorious BIG, as Wait What has done on his debut album, The Notorious xx, now seems weirdly obvious. Wait What doesn’t take apart the tracks and reinvent both sources like Danger Mouse did on The Grey Album, but Biggie’s massive attitude does sound pretty cool with the xx’s ethereal, sultry haze anyway. You can download the whole thing at his website. [NY Mag]
