Dave Sitek Adds Even More Grit to Run the Jewels’ ‘Sea Legs’
Killer Mike and El-P get remixed by TV on the Radio ax-man/producer
Run the Jewels’ debut album ranked high among SPIN’s Best Hip-Hop Albums of 2013, but El-P and Killer Mike’s collaborative effort has yet to receive a proper release abroad. On January 13, Ninja Tune’s overseas rap imprint Big Dada will issue the thing complete with a remix of “Sea Legs” by TV on the Radio co-founder and accomplished producer David Sitek (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Liars, Kelis). That bonus cut is free to download and streaming below. Therein, the windy ambience, wobbling synths, and crashing drums of the original are replaced by distorted fuzz, crunchy beats, and TNGHT-like blips and bloops.
