The Internet went into hyperdrive when Wugazi, a mash-up project that combines beloved iconic post-hardcore act Fugazi and beloved NYC hip-hop collective Wu-Tang Clan, released their first tune on SoundCloud last week. “Sleep Rules Everything Around Me” was a brilliant mix that restored out faith in mash-ups, and it ain’t no fluke: Yesterday, the Doomtree-affiliated project dropped another heady combo called “Sweet Release.”
The new tune mixes Fugazi’s “Sweet and Low” (off In on the Kill Taker) and “Release Yo’ Delf,” a single off Method Man‘s debut album. Here, Joe Lally‘s steady bassline keeps things funky, which is a solid platform for the rapper’s rhymes about being one of the best around.
This won’t be the last we hear from Wugazi. Their Facebook page has a single upcoming event listed: Wugazi’s 13 Chambers is due to hit the Internet July 13.
