If Danny Brown hadn’t already proven his worth as the king of dance/rap collaborations, he certainly has now. Having previously worked with the likes of Rustie (notably on powerhouse new track ‘Attak’) and A-Trak to outstanding success, the prospect of the Detroit-native teaming up with Aussie mythological dance-legends The Avalanches has the collective rap and dance communities flipping their wigs. Fresh off the back of his performance at Splendour In The Grass over the weekend, Brown spoke to Triple J’s Richard Kingsmill to confirm that he has teamed up with the fabled Melbourne outfit… not once, but twice! The first session saw the as yet unreleased ‘Frank Sinatra’ emerge, which he described as ‘OK’ – “They felt like it was okay and I felt like it was okay”. However, the second effort has Brown – and us – absolutely frothing –
“[Frank Sinatra] was cool but the one we did after that… I swear, if we put that out, it’ll change the world.”
“I heard it that first night and that was the only time I heard it. I wanna hear it again! But I know for a fact I put my foot into that song. When I work on something that hard I really like to receive the benefits from it so I can’t wait until The Avalanches release their next project!”
We’ve been waiting patiently for new Avalanches material since their highly acclaimed Since I Left You album in 2000, and as is their style, we still have no information regarding an upcoming release. Like Brown it looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer – but we’re Big Kev excited.
