Meow The Jewels: Killer Mike and El-P Remix Their Album Entirely With Cat Sounds

meow-the-jewelsRun The Jewels 2 artwork remixed for Meow The Jewels.

One of the best reviewed albums of last year, Killer Mike and El-P’s “Run The Jewels 2″, is being remixed entirely out of cat sounds. El-P joked last year that if someone shelled out $40,000 for a special version of their album he would remix it using cat sounds. The joke became reality when someone started a “Meow The Jewels” Kickstarter and El-P embraced it.

The joke project exploded, attracting producers including Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, Just Blaze, Zola Jesus, Baauer, Prince Paul, Dan The Automator, and the Alchemist.

This week El-P took to Instagram to share snippets of the remix album. Watch the video clips below!

Parasol Dead

Happy Halloween everyone! The creatives at Parasol Island got together and shot a little zombie flick, Parasol Dead.

Coincidentally one of my favourite groups Evil Nine just released their new video for All the Cash featuring El-P, and it’s also a zombie flick. Sadly, the song is great but the video sucks. If Parasol Island had shot a shorter version of Parasol Dead as the video for All the Cash then we woulda had a real winner. Watch both of them after the jump – and I think you’ll agree with me.
