Hear Shabazz Palaces Remix Battles

    On Feb. 21, Battles issue Dross Glop 2, a remix 12-inch of material from their recent Gloss Drop, that features remixes from Kode 9, The Alchemist and, most awesomely, Shabazz Palaces. Shabazz’s reworking of “White Electric” is below, and it’s really great. It features Ishmael Butler going off on “Reaganomics, Bushonomics, Obamanomics” over a mechanically altered version of the Battles original. There are few rappers who could make rapping over a Battles song work, and Shabazz Palaces are the best, clearly.
