"WE REMIXED THE BEAT FOR "GUV'NOR" AND DOOM SPAT NEW VERSES ON THE TRACK," BADBADNOTGOOD (BBNG) Tweeted almost immediately preceding Noisey's world premier of the JJ DOOM remix, which was lifted from Keys to The Kuffs (Butter Edition). Lex Records plans to unleash the expanded and remixed album version on August 21st, but sadly the 12" picture discs won't ship until the end of October; The 2-CD set includes the original 14-track album, plus 4 BRAND NEW tracks and a gaggle of all-star remixes, 2 of which make use of expanded DOOM verses, too. In addition to BBNG and in-house producer Jneiro Jarel, Butter Edition features glitched-out remix contributions from Beck, Clams Casino, Radiohead members Thom Yorke & Jonny Greenwood, and TV on The Radio mega-producer Dave Sitek.
Chester Hansen, Alex Sowinski & Matt Tavares AKA BADBADNOTGOOD previously recorded and self-released a blazin' instrumental Jazz cover titled "DOOM" (2011) that consists of a DOOM-spun medley: "Supervillain Theme/Fazers/Vomitspit." With that said, I guess you could say they're vaguely familiar with the source material ha... "GUV'NOR" (BBNG Remix) kinda sounds like an evil, lurching super-villain theme song. While MF DOOM's been around since KMD back in the late 1980-90's, and to paraphrase Kanye: "Every black super[villain] need his theme music," DOOM is arguably being introduced to a whole new generation of young Hip-Hop-heads and this could very well be his re-invigorated walk-on tune.
