Wallpaper. 'Pool Party' (Direct Link)
This summer has been the hottest on record for Oakland's club destroyers, Wallpaper. Following the remix of Das Racist's
"Combination Pizza Hut & Taco Bell" (which Pitchfork and Village Voice both proclaimed the "Summer Jam of '09"),
and a wildly controversial mashup of Jay-Z's "99 Problems" and "Death of Autotune" that RCRDLBL heralded
"dadaist genius" and MTV News declared "an instant favorite," its safe to say there are no signs of cooling down.
With the days growing long and the nights even longer, Wallpaper. has found themselves at the heart of another
summer track, this time a collaboration with Jacob Safari of The Mae Shi and Kid Static from Chicago.
"Me and Jacob from The Mae Shi had been playing grab ass for a few months about collaborating on some music.
So he finally sent me this freaky glitch reggaeton thing. I was in the studio late on a Saturday night
chalk full of Red Bull and self loathing, wishing I was on top of the Standard Hotel LA gettin’
my ugly dude on. So I wrote 'Pool Party.'"
Wallpaper.'s debut LP Doodoo Face drops September 22nd.
