First Spin: Hear Flinch’s Ground-Rumbling Remix to Big Freedia’s ‘Excuse’


Thanks to the hardest working woman in bounce business, Big Freedia, azz continues to be everywhere. Soon she’ll be turning your local club into a sauna thanks to the first ever Check Yo Ponytail tour alongside similarly booty-minded pals as Spank Rock, the Death Set, Pictureplane, Franki Chan, and much more.

Until then, check out this tectonic-shifting remix to her “Excuse.” Dubcentric Los Angeles producer Flinch gave it a spastic double time feel, some cartoonish sawblade tweaks and a healthy serving of always-timeless Public Enemy samplage. It’s the B-side to the tour-exclusive 7″, coming courtesy of unlikely dance-music patrons Scion. Spank Rock’s “#1 Hit” mutilated by the Death Set appears on the flip, but we’re pretty sure after a night inside a Freedia show, they’ll just be a puddle of wet plastic.
