And having heard his remix of Bieber, I'm hoping that's something we can look forward to more often as a series of one-offs.
really worth a listen.
where can I get the Bieber remix??
Watch out for the Sam Kinison cameo :-D
Man, how amazing does Funcrusher Plus still sound?! that production is going to be timeless
Have you heard Little Johnny From The Hospital as well Dan?
I'M REALLY SORRY!
I've not. Not heard any of his instrumental work before. Will check some more out now!
That said, I felt the same about Cannibal Ox's "Cold Vein" until I gave it a proper afternoon's listen so hopefully it's easily rectified.
Fan Dam is still my go to El-P record. It's one of those albums (along with Converge's Jane Doe and CoL's Somewhere Along the Highway) that can make you feel adrenalised-as-fuck if listened to in the right context.
Funcrusher Plus clicks, minds will be blown. It hasn't really dated at all.
I used to be such an El-P fiend, I'd buy any album if it had a track he produced on it as he hardly ever disappoints - even the jazz album he did is worth hearing.
came out in 2004 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Water
Some good stuff on it and his production complements the players well, picked it up from emusic a couple of years back:
Sampled it and dug it. As far as futuristic angular abstract hip-hop producers go, he's still unparalleled, and his work sounds better with every passing year.
This still sounds ahead of the game:
Definitely going to be investing in this.
Def Jux are by far the most important label in terms of me forming a love of hip-hop, mainly due to El-P; Fantastic Damage, Funcrusher Plus and The Cold Vein are easily in my top five hip-hop albums (along with 36 Chambers and Midnight Marauders).
