Loving this right now. Auto-tuned P.O.S. sounds quite nice, actually. Doomtree remixed the Gayngs album, named it Affiliyated, and put it out as a free download. Unsurprisingly, Cecil’s work on here is probably the most bad-ass and amazing (closer “Sand In The Lotion” FTW), but this regrind by Mr. Yeah Right hit me hard on first listen. Below are the rules of the album, via City Pages:
To create the GAYNGS’ Regrind EP all of the stems from the bands debut album, Relayted, were arbitrarily named and compiled into a list. Ensuring anonymity, the list was presented in alphabetical order (shown below) to a collection of producers and musicians. They were then instructed to choose only 10, without knowing what songs they came from or what instruments they contained. One could choose anything from four sax solos and six bass lines, to eight keyboards and two background vocals. The combinations that could be chosen were indefinite…the only certainty was that the parts would all be set to the tempo of 69 beats per minute. From there, the re-grinders were free to chop, pitch-shift, and otherwise pulverize the stems into a new, cohesive song. The only rule was that they must use all 10 stems they were given, and that the tempo must remain at GAYNGS’ standard 69 bpm.
“Freak out squares / Somethin bout how we give less than a fuck raises her hairs”
