JJ Doom – Banished (Beck Remix)

beck remix jj doom

Beck has turned his ever experimenting hand back to hip hop in a move anyone would find hard to predict, on this remix of JJ Doom’s “Banished” (JJ Doom = MF Doom + Jneiro Janel).

The results are certainly ‘interesting’, and not in an “I don’t like it but can’t be arsed to say why” way but more in a thought provoking, intriguing way; Beck’s raw and laid back acoustic instrumentation offers a whole new dimension to the original and gives you plenty of reasons to hold out for it’s full duration.

Out on Lex 20th August.
