In the “connections we should have made a long time ago” column, the outer-orbit funk of Shabazz Palaces and the bulbous alien electronics of Animal Collective are a match made in outer space. The two pair up for a remix of the AnCo song “New Town Burnout”, one of four-songs on the band’s forthcoming remix EP, Monkey Been To Burn Town, that also features remixes by Gang Gang Dance, Teengirl Fantasy, and Chicago Juke producer Traxman.
Listen to MC Palaceer Lazero sneak a 16-bar verse into the sinews of the songs’ new sci-fi structure below (via Gorilla vs. Bear).
Monkey Been To Burn Town is out May 28th via Domino Records, and you can pre-order the limited edition 12″ here. A pre-order comes with a download of the Gang Gang Dance remix of “Monkey Riches”, which you can also listen to here.
