Hear Thom Yorke, Dave Sitek, and Clams Casino Rework JJ DOOM’s Gritty Rap Tracks
'Keys to the Kuffs' to receive July "Butter Edition" reissue
JJ DOOM are relaunching their slept-on debut Keys to the Kuffs as the “Butter Edition,” which will feature new tracks from the pair and choice remixes from some high-profile names. The project combines the rhyming styles of (MF) DOOM and the production prowess of Jneiro Jarel. Last year’s album included guest spots from Beth Gibbons, Damon Albarn, and Goodie Mob man Khujo. It also delivered one of 2012’s Best Rap Lines.
Above you’ll find the new song “Bookhead” with a video directed by New York graffiti legend ESPO. Below you’ll find remixes of various Kuffs tracks by Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood (“Retarded Fren”), Clams Casino (“Bookfiend”), and TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek (“Rhymin Slang”). While most of the songs from the “Butter Edition” can be streamed on the Lex Records site, a reworking from Beck and the Del the Funky Homosapien-featuring “Viberian Son” have yet to be uploaded.
