One of the more intriguing projects to pop up last year was Pop Massacre, a remix-centric compilation that paired up electronic artists with classic pop tunes. It featured Daedelus, Shlohmo, and Dntel taking on tracks by Prince, Lady GaGa, and Soulja Boy, among many others. And today, the folks behind the project — artist collective Friends of Friends — have doled out Pop Massacre 2.
Like its predecessor, the second volume is yours for free. It boasts the remix work of Shlohmo, Salva, JonWayne, Mexicans With Guns, and many others. They take on tracks ranging from Nappy Roots’ nostalgia-inducing “AwNaw,” to the Beatles’ trippy “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer,” to Waka Flocka Flame’s chest-pounding “Hard In Da Paint.” This is pretty much the weirdest/best thing you’ll listen to today.
