As Grimes, Claire Boucher has created an endearing, visionary form of bedroom pop. Recently, she’s stepped off her California Queen to offer her production services to Montreal rapper (and former poet laureate of Edmonton, AB) Cadence Weapon. The pair’s collaborative track, “88”, is a call back to the olden days of hip-hop, with a bit of Ghostface Killah thrown in for fun. However, where there once was bubbly turntable scratches and drum machine beats now rests an array of jarring, wonky effects, like an old KRS-ONE vinyl melted in the sun. Stream it below (via Spinner).

The track could be the first in a series of random drops leading up to Cadence’s upcoming LP. “So today marks my new habit of dropping a song/mix/video every week or so. maybe even more frequently. less bagel talk, more songs in 2012,” he tweeted this morning. As always, stay tuned for more.
