Released: 10th April 2012
Genre: Experimental Rap/Hip-Hop
With thirteen days to go until highly anticipated album The Money Store from hip-hoppers Death Grips, the group from Sacramento have dropped I’ve Seen Footage, a track that follows on from previously dropped track Get Got and adds to the psychedelic atmosphere the band have crafted their sound out of.
A hugely catchy beat complete with slightly lo-fi production crunches the many layers of samples and synth together, while continuous yelling of barely audible words ties it up into an explosive package. With Salt N Pepa’s classic Push It’s out of breath heaves also added to the mix, it creates one of the most interesting and exciting listening experiences I’ve had in quite a while.
Get Got and I’ve Seen Footage are both very good tracks that leave me (and quite a lot of other people too) very excited to experience The Money Store. With the standard of these two being very high, it’s looking more likely that Death Grips could very well be releasing one of the best albums of the year.
