TRACK: Kid Acne – ‘Stand Tall’ / ‘Stay Golden’ (Hashfinger remix) – crisp lyricism from limited ‘Fresh To Death’ mixtape

SHEFFIELD’S Kid Acne is up in your (Ford Orion) grille with a fantastic new mixtape, featuring seven remixes from last year’s excellent Have A Word album for Lex.

Fresh To Death is out digitally, sho’; but why settle for that when you can have the full dayglo pink TDK mixtape experience?

He brings the fantastic and dizzying culturally referential flow – Axl Rose, Axelrod, Axel F, Slartibartfast, Sodastream – all in the opening track “Stand Tall”/”Stay Golden” – as suitably and darkly remashed on the tape by Hashfinger. We’ve embedded it below. Cop that for crisp and vital British rhymes on a shadowy, digitized tip.

You also get a “pseudo-celestial” remix of “Ote For Note”; the darker Chemo take on “Unemployed Gods”; the boundary-push of King Kashmere’s consciousness-spill across “Bubblegoose Empire”; and exotic stretchings from Norm Oddity on “You Get What You’re Given”. Yeps. And more.

Fresh To Death is out now, and there’s only 150 – yep, that’s right – a ton-fifty – of the cassette. For a tenner. Get your flesh and and your PayPal over to his Bandcamp page, pronto.
