Battles ~ White Electric (Shabazz Palaces remix)

This is sweet but also bitter since the first verse is from the unreleased jewel "Allahu Akbar" inclining me to think that song won't get a studio release. "Trapped tightly in the eagles claws" that's a homage to the Last Poets it's from them. Interesting to hear it now amidst the rising dissatisfaction with "Reaganomics/Bushanomics/Obamanomics". it's cool to see ish becoming a remixer it's a whole new phase in his career since he's never done this before. So Shabazz has remixed Foe and now Battles... Ish always has had a strong love for British artists going back to the 90s and his work with D-Influence, ">Tek 9, and 4Hero. Hold on, maybe Battles are American.. anyway, here's the original (album) version as well:
