Gaslamp Killer – HELIO GLK (Mixtape)

gaslamp-killer-helio-glk

Brainfeeder’s Gaslamp Killer loves the Heliocentrics so he remixed some of tracks from their new album into a mixtape of his own.

Gaslamp Killer’s debut album was a sample wonderland and certainly gained fans in Potholes when it reached #1 on their top 25 instrumental albums of last year. A few weeks ago, he selected some of the best joints from the Heliocentrics’ new album 13 Degrees of Reality and gave them a new lease of life. The re-edits made it onto a mixtape, HELIO GLK, and it’s available for free download.

“In 2008 Jeff Jank asked me to make a Heliocentrics podcast for stones throw to help promote the guys 1st album. It was one of my most fun & unique mixes. […] It is an honor that I present this, (my newest mix) HELIO GLK to the world. My chopped up / re edited madness from the band they call The Heliocentrics!” – Taken from Rappcats

According to Rappcats, record label Now-Again could release this mix as a limited edition 12”. If you like it, that might be something to keep an eye out for.
