2018 remix album also available in Vinyl.
11 new reinterpretations of songs from the award winning ‘Relaxer’ featuring Danny Brown, GoldLink, Little Simz, Pusha T, Twin Shadow, Rejjie Snow and more.
“It’s no secret that we love and are influenced by hip hop, and it’s always been a dream of ours to work with hip-hop artists in reimagining our music. With ‘Reduxer’ that dream has come true. We couldn’t be happier with the results. This album is truly global, featuring rappers and producers from all over the world. After a very long time in the making, we are stoked to share it with you all.”
Putting their own indelible vocals on the songs are, amongst others, Grammy nominated US hip hop high flyer GoldLink, platinum-certified Parisian rapper Lomepal, Berlin powerhouse Kontra K, Dublin-born breakthrough rapper Rejjie Snow, Australian auteur Tuka, Puerto Rican rapper PJ Sin Suela and London’s acclaimed Little Simz.
The project was first hinted at last month when Virginia Beach hip hop superstar PushaT and LA synth pop polymath Twin Shadow both joined alt-J for a surprise performance of ‘In Cold Blood’ on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
alt-J - one of the most successful British bands of the millennium - are Joe Newman, Gus Unger-Hamilton and Thom Green. Released last year, ‘Relaxer’ flew straight into the Top 10 of the UK Album Chart ahead of a summer of major international shows, including a headline show at London’s O2 Arena; and headline performances at numerous festivals. ‘Relaxer’ is the follow up to their Number One, Grammy and Brit Award-nominated album ‘This Is All Yours’ and their 2012 Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Award-winning debut ‘An Awesome Wave’. Between them, the records have sold in excess of two million copies and their songs have been streamed more than one billion times.
