[Listen] Alt-J - "Slow Dre" (Kylie Minogue x Dr. Dre Mashup)

Last weekend I witnessed my favourite gig of the year. A gig upon leaving I actually sent a text to my girlfriend and said it was in my all time top 5. A few days later, I still stand by that statement. It was flawless and it came from Alt-J who played a matinee show at Manchester's Royal Northern College of Music. The room was completely seated and from start to finish they just performed in perfect sync. Midway through the set I was impressed by a mashup they did of Dr. Dre's "Still Dre" and Kylie Minogue's "Slow". It doesn't sound like it should work but it does so damn well it's crazy. Today I was happy to see they recorded a version of it for Triple J's Like a Version segment in Australia. The results can be streamed below and you can hear a version of "Breezeblocks" over here too. Hat-tip to Hypetrak for the heads up on this recording of it!

If you haven't heard their album, An Awesome Wave, yet I advise you to do so.

Well it's been awhile since we heard Game and Dr. Dre on the same track, since their fallout years ago, but with Game back on the Aftermath roster and Dr. Dre signed on as executive producer on The R.E.D. Album alongside Neptunes' Pharrell Williams, it was a given that this collaboration had to happen.
