(Chop Suey) Late last year, the local beat producer Keyboard Kid released a dense, rich, and overflowing album called #Rare Drops from the Sun. One of the tracks on this record remixed/spliced/sliced/versioned/mutated/recombined Janelle Monae's wonderfully batty tune "Cold War." The curious thing is this: New Jersey's Clams Casino also remixed/spliced/sliced/versioned/mutated/recombined "Cold War" on his 2011 Instrumental Mixtape. And though I love Clams Casino's work as a whole, I do prefer Keyboard Kid's version of "Cold War," which is called "Cold War 2" and is dark, deep, and disturbing. Altogether, Keyboard Kid is more sinister and abrasive than Clams Casino.
