The rap supergroup’s single gets a party-starting remix from recent FACT-interviewee El-P.
Combining Crooked I, Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden and Royce Da 5’9, Slaughterhouse is, pound-for-pound, one of the most talented collectives in hip-hop. While the original was backed by a haunting AraabMuzik beat, El-P’s remix gives ‘Hammer Dance’ a rowdy and relentless taste of boom bap, complete with gunshot samples and plenty of old school scratching.
‘Hammer Dance’ is the lead single on Slaughterhouse’s Welcome to: Our House, their Shady Records debut, due out August 28. Stream the remix now and compare it to the original.
