Shabazz Palaces remixing Lushlife’s Plateau Vision highlight “Hale-Bopp was the Bedouins” pretty much means that everyone doing cool shit in indie rap (for lack of a better phrase) is on this track now – Shabazz’s Ishmael Butler drops a typically creepy verse in which he sounds like an outer-space wise man and chops and screws the original’s Gang Gang Dance sample (yes) into a stuttering, offbeat droney stagger; let’s not forget that Das Racist’s Heems is on this track to begin with (but his vocals, on this remix, are not immune to Ish’s taste for deconstruction); Ish probably keeps Lushlife’s own intro verse mostly intact just because it’s so good. Check it out.
