In May 2013, Animal Collective released Monkey Been to Burn Town, an EP of remixes culled from their 2012 LP Centipede Hz. Among the contributors were Seattle hip-hop duo Shabazz Palaces, who offered a surreal, otherworldly rework of album standout “New Town Burnout”.
Now, some 18 months later, AnCo has finally returned the favor by unveiling its edit of the Lese Majesty banger “#CAKE”. The “Animal Collective Premature Deflirt Mix” finds the manic number slowed down and pitch-shifted considerably, with the glitchy vocals and syrupy rhythms resulting in quite the early morning headrush.
