Prince and producer John Luongo‘s “Batdance” (Remix) finally sees the light of day. The track was produced and recorded in 1989 boasts two verses from Big Daddy Kane, which he reportedly came up with on the spot in the studio. The final mix from Luongo combines Kane’s verses with new vocals from Prince and a chop of the 1960s Batman theme. In the end result was funked up boom-bap. Unfortunately, Warner decided the remix was “weird” and tabled the track.
“The whole thing, recording, mix and editing, took a day and a half. But I had a deadline! I remember FedEx was there waiting as I did my best to finish up, so we could make the next plane to rush it over to L.A. and Minnesota to let Warner Bros. and Prince hear what I had done. … And then Warner Bros, said they didn’t like it; it was too different. And that was it. They didn’t release it. “
Mongrels self-released their first 7″Slingshots” in 1997 after which they became part of a larger recording collective known as Toah Dynamic, soon releasing two studio albums and a string of EP’s. The two guys who have started the whole story together include Kid Acne and Benjamin. This duo joined forces through a shared love of hip-hop and graffiti in the mid 1990’s back when Benjamin was making pause-button tapes on a pair of belt-drive decks and young Kid Acne was genuinely a spotty teenager.

Beyoncé is not one to make announcements too far in advance, frankly because she doesn’t need to. She released a short trailer for Lemonade earlier this week without any further detail about what it was. While the world stopped and tuned into HBO to watch the hour long visual album, Queen Bey quietly dropped her new album on Tidal.
The 12-track album crosses over an array of different genres and features guest appearances by Jack White, The Weeknd, James Blake, and Kendrick Lamar. The album credits also features a long list of other notable names who helped put this album together—including Diplo, Ezra Koenig,Emile Haynie, Father John Misty, MeLo-X, Hit-Boy, The-Dream, Mike Dean, Just Blaze, Jon Brion, and many more.
Aside from the stacked list of notable features, writers, and producers, Lemonade also gives writing credit to Soulja Boy and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs for interpolations of “Turn My Swag On” and “Maps” on the second track, “Hold On.” The Jack White-featuring track “Don’t Hurt Yourself” features a sample of Led Zeppelin’s “When The Levee Breaks.” Elements of Outkast’s “Spottieottiedopaliscious” can also be heard on the eleventh track, “All Night.” In other words, Beyoncé offers up a well-rounded body of work with her latest release.
Lemonade is currently available on Tidal. Listen to it here.
