The twitchy Portland/New Zealand skewed-pop trio Unknown Mortal Orchestra aren’t exactly the first indie-pop band you’d expect to line up remixes with guest raps, but it’s happened anyway. The Canadian rap producer Black Noi$e has taken on the band’s lithe and graceful single “So Good At Being In Trouble,” transforming it into a jumped-up synth-rap banger and adding in guest verses from two rap titans, veteran Atlanta firebrand Killer Mike and rising Brooklyn libertine Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire. It’s an unlikely combination, but it goes like a motherfucker. Hear the remix below.
UMO’s album II is out now on Jagjaguwar.
