Reduxer is a set of eleven incredible reinterpretations of songs from their award winning third album Relaxer, reimagined by a host of fans, friends and peers, including a globe-straddling cross-section of some of the world’s most influential and prolific hip hop artists and producers.
Putting their own indelible vocals on the songs are, amongst others, Grammy-nominated US hip hop high flyer GoldLink , platinum-certified Parisian rapper Lomepal , Berlin powerhouse Kontra K, Dublin-born breakthrough rapper Rejjie Snow , Australian auteur Tuka , Puerto Rican rapper PJ Sin Suela and London’s acclaimed Little Simz.
The project was first hinted at last month when Virginia Beach hip hop superstar PushaT and LA synthpop polymath Twin Shadow both joined alt-J for a surprise performance of In Cold Blood on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, before swiftly releasing the studio version of the collaboration. A second track is debuted today, a new version of Deadcrush reworked by legendary producer The Alchemist and Latin American production powerhouse Trooko, and featuring the unmistakable vocals of hip hop iconoclast Danny Brown.
