I’ve listened to a lot of mashups in my day. Normally they are party tracks that take a popular club beat and superimpose the vocals of a top 40 track of the moment ala Girl Talk or sometimes they tend to dig a little bit deeper to give us something like last year’s Kids and Explosions or the noted Jay Z/Linkin Park collaboration, but every once and a while I’ll stumble upon a mashup that truly leaves me floored. Four Tet’s mash up of Nas’ “It Ain’t Hard to Tell” with Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s “Sleep” is simply mesmerizing. The ebb and flow of Nas’ rhymes and the gentle swell of strings that build and build come together so flawlessly that it was almost as if they were made for each other.

Blindsided

ooooh man, I'm listening to my new Godspeed vinyl but as soon as it's done I'm playing this track.

Aids
02.18.11
Holy shit man. You said it; it's "as if they were made for each other."

Seriously, this rules so hard. I mean, both songs do on their own, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised but still, it sounds like a match made in heaven.

"Because Nas is really good and GY!BE is really good too?"
good logic.

I'm putting "King of Carrot Flowers Pt. 1" by Neutral Milk Hotel over "Sun of Nothing" by BTBAM and it'll probably work out fine.
They're both good bands so it should be about this good.
