TORO-Y-MOI-x-TYLER-THE-CREATOR

In a compelling example of genre juxtaposition, chillwave’s crown prince Chaz Bundick of Toro Y Moi (whose second record Underneath the Pine just dropped) has remixed the shock-rap stylings of Odd Future’s just-signed Tyler, the Creator, namely “French,” a highlight from last year’s Bastard.

It’s no secret that Tyler’s a phenomenal young rapper (despite his notably questionable and definitely NSFW content) and that the ‘80s sensibility Bundick uncovered with Underneath the Pine is awesome, but they aren’t reconciled cleanly here – it sounds like you started playing two different songs in two different windows. Maybe a little more time in the oven could have done this one some good. Give it a listen and see what you think.
