We love when music worlds collide. Actually, no, the days of rap-metal fusion, that was an example of genres literally colliding. These days, genres don’t crash into each other, they intertwine in much more rewarding, subtle ways. Even with genre boundaries crumbling, there are plenty of unlikely combinations that emerge and surprise us. Like, say, Juicy J remixing Passion Pit.
“Constant Conversations” is the smoothest thing Michael Angelakos has ever recorded, so perhaps it was only a matter of time before an enterprising MC laid a few rhymes over the head-bobbing track. But we can’t say we would’ve pegged Juicy J as the man for the job. But here the Columbia labelmates link up for an official remix, and it works! Our only complaint is that Juicy turns up for just one verse. Solid idea and solid execution, but it left us wanting more. Hear it below.
