The schizophrenic take on ’80s new wave of L-D’s “A Line You Can Cross” earned them a Band To Watch tag earlier this year, so we were psyched to hear the anonymous art collective’s new, self-released project. They’ve called the record D.I. by D.D., and it’s a ten track record of “hip-hop inflected renditions” of the songs from this year’s Dividing Island. The “D.D.” is Miami producer Dazzle D, and this premiere is Dazzle’s reinterpretation of “A Line.”
It’s under two minutes, with Dazzle cooking up new beats, rearranging the original, and taking it in a new direction, all while trying not to violate the original’s vibe. No release date on the project yet, but more info (and another MP3) is available here.
