Philadelphia-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Body Meat (née Christopher Taylor) lends his Year Of The Orc track, “Ghost,” to the experimental rap group Injury Reserve for a lively remix—out today via Partisan.
The remix features new vocals from RiTchie and an erratic beat constructed of samples and programmed drums that are true to the style of both Body Meat and Injury Reserve, ultimately finding a hypnotic groove amidst chaos.
It’s an incredibly natural collaboration between two artists in lockstep. “My beautiful friends made a beautiful reimagining of a song that means a lot to me,” Taylor says.
The new track arrives just ahead of Body Meat’s EU/UK tour supporting Injury Reserve, as well as his first ever headlining show in London on Nov. 9th (all dates below).
