Yesterday saw the release of the fourth installment in rapper Illy and producer M-Phazes‘ collaborative “Friday Flips” project, a hip-hop revamp of Blink 182’s “Dammit”. The series thus far has seen the Australian duo take on tracks from the likes of Skrillex and The White Stripes, and this new effort puts an entirely new dynamic into the track – pop-punk to irresistibly cool hip-hop is a strange step, but an assured one from these two guys. Illy’s fast becoming one of my favourite lyricists, and I maintain the viewpoint that M-Phazes is one of the most ridiculously good beatmakers in the business.
Stream their version of “Dammit” below and download it for free in the player below. Whole-heartedly recommended.
