Sample-obsessed producer Girl Talk (aka Gregg Gillis) announced recently that he’s teamed up with Philly rap vet Freeway for an upcoming collaborative EP, entitled Broken Ankles.
The pair have been recording together over the past two months, and the result is the forthcoming EP, which according to a press release, “reflects the meticulous nature of Girl Talk’s prior work while setting a fitting pace for Freeway’s dynamic, high-powered flow.”
“I wanted to work closer to traditional song structure, compared to my last few albums, but still include some detailed sample splicing and change-ups when it felt appropriate,” says Girl Talk. “The overall structure is what I thought worked best with Freeway’s style.
“It’s always important, to me, to have an album that works as a whole; something that has a calculated flow to it, which is intended to be listened to front to back.”
So far, they’ve debuted the track “Tolerated,” during a recent performance in NYC (below).
Further details are unknown. The Broken Ankles is due out this fall.
