Lee Bannon – “RMF-3″ (Feat. Charlie Benante Of Anthrax) (Stereogum Premiere)

Experimental electronic producer Lee Bannon has teamed up with Charlie Benante, who is best known as the lead songwriter and drummer in the thrash metal band Anthrax, on a new drum ‘n’ bass track. “RMF-3″ will be included on Bannon’s forthcoming Main/Flex EP. The early moments of the song feature the sampled voice of a child accompanied by the sound of flashbulbs along to a muted, ambient build. About a minute in, the track spits fire as it staggers toward something cosmic, accompanied by a sound that can only truly be likened to a fast-bouncing slinky or the hollow gurgle of Aphex Twin’s “Digeridoo.” Listen below.

Main/Flex is out 11/4 via Babygrande.
