I’ll come clean: I know little of Hot Hot Heat, I don’t own any of their music nor do I have an intense need to buy it. However, on a recent record-shopping excursion, I came across the 12″ vinyl single for Goodnight Goodnight, which includes a remix by El-P (he of Company Flow, Definitive Jux fame).
If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a hip-hop nerd. And I’ll buy just about anything with El-P’s name attached to it. His production work is insane and he’s a pretty damn dope emcee, too. If you don’t know, check Company Flow’s Funcrusher Plus. Or El’s solo Fantastic Damage.
This Goodnight Goodnight remix is classic El-P fare: muddy beats, distortion and just downright slammin’ drum tracks. Check the breakdown in the final seconds of the mix.
