Daniel Dumile (RIP) was one of the most prolific artists on Lex, releasing three studio albums as lead vocalist and one as a beatmaker. We spent a huge amount of time with him in the 2010s. Heâ€™ll be missed always.
J Dilla and MF DOOM only made a handful of tracks together. The best was â€˜GAZZILLION EARâ€™, built around a massive Giorgio Moroder sample.
Thom Yorke remixed the track twice. The first version was originally released simply under â€˜Thom Yorke Remixâ€™ but he delivered it with the moniker â€˜Monkey Hustle Remixâ€™ to differentiate it from the â€˜Man On Fire Remixâ€™, which gets its debut release 12 years after Thom delivered it.
The â€˜Man On Fire Remixâ€™ is searing caustic noise on first listen, but in that dense mass of jarring sirens, thereâ€™s a lurching, jerking funk track that becomes clearer on every repeat.
