Mike Gao's recipe for his remix to “Crime Killz x Human Suit”, the self-titled collaboration between the Tuscon Gameboy punk moniker of Scumbag Tony Nickelplated and vocalist Nate NoFace and Machina Muerte founders Isaiah Toothtaker and Mestizo, is a simple slathering of molasses to slow the tempo and emphasize the bass thumps.
The original “Crime Killz x Human Suit” is the final cut on Toothtaker's album Illuminati Thug Mafia. The Crime Killz version is upbeat and danceable, making it a peculiar ending to Toothtaker's ultraviolent full length. It's also ill-fitting of the Human Suit we've heard thus far. Revisiting “I Gotcha,” it's hard to believe Human Suit has a softer side. Mike Gao toughens up the Human Suit crooning of “your love's not love,” thugging up the break up song with low end modulations.
Illuminati Thug Mafia is out now on Machina Muerte.
