UK producer Lapalux dropped his first EP, Forest, in 2008 but he caught our attention last year with the glitched wonder of Many Faces Out of Focus and that brilliant deconstruction of some Gwen Stefani song (free download). Since then, he’s signed to Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder record label, and earlier this month the Essex native put out the When You’re Gone EP. For a taste, check out the warped R+B of “Moments”…
So here’s another artists we never thought we’d post at this site, Gwen Stefani (first it was Christina Aguilera… HEY… this free download is awesome). Well, it’s not actually a proper Gwen Stefani song. It’s Laplux doing an unauthorized bootleg remix of her (Notorious B.I.G. ripoff) hit “Luxurious” (or is it the Isley Brothers that really got ripped here?).
Whatever the case, we really dig how Laplux took this song, stripped it of any Notorious B.I.G-channeling or Isley Brothers-ness, and stretched, pulled and bent it over a slow-dripping beat. Pretty hot.
