About this item

In 2021, Australia’s favorite psychedelic sons made waves by enlisting turntable hero DJ Shadow for an epic, block-rocking remix and hilarious accompanying video. Now, that collaboration is finally seeing release on vinyl.

King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard’s “Black Hot Soup (DJ Shadow ‘My Own Reality’ Re-Write) vinyl edition is a limited, translucent 12” single with red, blue & yellow splatter. Strictly limited to 2,000 copies.

Across two sides Shadow takes the stems of KGJL and creates a throughly intoxicating instrumental breaks psychedelic freakout. With woozy organs, typically Shadow-esque drums and thick, claustophobic production. There's even some classic turntablism thrown in alongside the vocal parts! Side B sees the whole piece rewound in a very vintage psych stylee.

“I’m glad that it’s finally getting a proper vinyl release,” says Shadow. “It’s nice to commemorate art you’re proud of with something physical, just to mark the occasion with some permanence.”

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Strong remix from Shadow here, in keeping with his usual style. Pleasantly surprised with how well he works with these psychedelic stems! Nice rewind on side B (although I've got a Vestax turntable so I could have done this myself manually :P )_
