Free MP3 Of The Day: “Seven (James Pants Remix),” Tyler, The Creator

Gothic rap? Nightmare-rap? Twisted roots? These tags (and more) can easily apply to the music created by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Odd Future[/lastfm]’s fearless leader, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Tyler, the Creator[/lastfm]. Add some [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]James Pants [/lastfm]and at the least we’ve got ourselves some funky rap.

When we heard Stones Throw native [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] James Pants [/lastfm]is a huge fan of Tyler,[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] The Creator[/lastfm]’s mix of dark-core and nightmare-rap (violent imagery laced with jarring lyricism), we knew the remix to the freakish hip-hop number “Seven” from the insanely-popular self-released album “Bastard” would be, well — interesting.

As Stones Throw Records points outs, “Tyler gave James Pants the stems for ‘Seven’ from his album Bastard and let him turn him into a devil with a thing for sonar ping and deep hand drums. There’s also a bit of late song sexy sax which turns into solo sad sax.”

Now if that doesn’t catch your attention, then maybe Tyler’s paranoid ramblings – “pretty chords,” as he likes to describe them – and massive synth hip-hop beats, will. He did, after all, manage to land a spot at No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart with his first retail album Goblin, which officially moved over 45K units the first week of its release (May 18, 2011/XL Recordings).

Two words. We’re impressed.
