New Lansing-Dreiden – “Thrillz Drink”

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.”

Lansing-Dreiden – “Thrillz Drink” (MP3)

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.
