Adult Swim/Beaterator: ATL RMX [ep/mix]



It's ultimately a promo for a new Timbaland-inspired video game (Beaterator), but this free project features talented electronic production-folk like Flying Lotus, El-P, Hudson Mohawke, and Starkey remixing tracks from some of Atlanta's most popular hip-hop heroes (Cee-Lo, Lil Jon, Young Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Gorilla Zoe, B.O.B.). Whether you're ATL faithful already or a fan of imaginative electronic production, this project will both strengthen and diversify your bonds; exposing you to some legends in the broader hip-hop and electronic culture and pleasing you with some extremely well executed combinations. Don't look here for righteous lyrics or spiritual grooves though, this is straight ear candy. It's fresh hearing what someone like El-P -- who did a classic electro-jazz joint like Sunrise Over Brooklyn -- can do with some Young Jeezy lyrics.
