Alt-J announce hip hop remix album

By | Published on Wednesday 18 July 2018


Alt-J have announced a new compilation featuring hip hop reworks of tracks from their most recent album ‘Relaxer’. Titled ‘Reduxer’, it includes contributions from Pusha T, Danny Brown, Twin Shadow, Little Simz, and more.

“It’s no secret that we love and are influenced by hip hop, and it’s always been a dream of ours to work with hip hop artists in reimagining our music”, say the band. “With ‘Reduxer’ that dream has come true. We couldn’t be happier with the results. This album is truly global, featuring rappers and producers from all over the world. After a very long time in the making, we are stoked to share it with you all”.

The first inkling of the new project came last month when the band performed ‘In Cold Blood’ with Pusha T and Twin Shadow on American telly programme ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’.¬†Watch the performance here:
