El-P vs Bieber

El-P talks about his new instrumental album in an interview with the LA Times here... he's out there previewing his new album of instrumentals at legendary LA clubnight the Low End Theory, home to Gaslamp Killer, Flying Lotus and more.

" ...his most impressive achievement may have come last month, when a Twitter in-joke with XLR8R magazine forced him to try his hand at remixing Justin Bieber’s “Baby.” Splicing in a sample of Paul McCartney and Wings'  “Live and Let Die,” and tarring and feathering Bieber’s teen pop with heavy dubstep rhythms, El-P set it loose onto the internet."

They've got the tune for download at the bottom of the interview too. Listen at your own risk.

"Rapper, producer and Def Jux founder El-P knows how to get to parts of the brain others can't. As a solo artist and frontman for seminal hip-hop group Company Flow or producer of Cannibal Ox, Cage, Mr. Lif, Aesop Rock, NIN, Beck, The Mars Volta (and many, many more), an El-P production can drive you to hide underneath the bed, punch a wall and nod your head all at the same time. Which brings us to Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3" (out August 3).
