Well here is your wtf moment of the day. On the newest episode of Selector, a show at Pitchfork where a rappers are invited to freestyle over tracks by indie artists, New York’s Jim Jones and mashup figurehead Girl Talk get together and create a brand new song. Apparently, Jones liked it so much he is going to release it as a single, “Believe in Magic.” Watch the video over here.
If you aren’t familiar with Girl Talk then get familiar. He doesn’t just take a couple songs and cram them together. His originals tend to be made up of a dozen or more tracks ranging from 80’s synth pop to gangster rap to classic rock. Here are a couple of tracks from his 2010 release All Day available for free at Illegal Art.
