Kid Cudi Adds Rhymes, Christian Bale To LCD Soundsystem's "Dance Yrself Clean"

When evaluating LCD Soundsystem’s newest, we said This Is Happening opener “Dance Yrself Clean” gets things going perfectly. It’s a great establishing shot, Murphy suggesting you laugh things off and cut a rug instead, even when the push/pull remains. Seeing that instrumental opening section as a blank slate, Kid Cudi takes the song — or at least a 3:36 chunk of it — in a different direction and calls it “All Talk.” He starts things off with a sample of Christian Bale’s Terminator: Salvation-set rant and ends with Murphy’s “except you are an actual jerk and living proof…” Between that, we get verses from Cudi and — as KC notes over at his site — Chip Tha Ripper.

  1. Generally not a massive fan of these kind of remixes/sampling shenanigans but I find myself listening to this one a few times; I feel it’s mainly down to the industrial strength that the original track has, as I am currently obsessed with the new LCD album.

  2. I love what Kid CuDi does.

  3. I approve. This is awesome. Great use of the synth breakdown at just the right time. And gotta love the Christian Bale.
