“I think they’re one of my favourite bands right now. I really fell in love with that beat in ‘Full Moon‘ and then I ended up emailing them saying ‘is it lazy or like illegal if we do a mash up of ‘Sacrifice‘ and the beat from ‘Full Moon ?’ They thought it was a great idea.

"I emailed Zach [Hill, Death Grips drummer] and said, ’How do you feel about doing a mash-up of ’Full Moon’ and ’Sacrifice’ ? Is it crazy, lazy or wrong ?’" The hybrid on ’Bastards’ is a writhing, polyrhythmic whirr that sticks in your brain.
