Janelle Monae: 600%

22 04 2011

Regular readers of this blog will know how much I love Janelle Monae. But even I was surprised to find how great she sounded 600% slower. This super-slowed-down version of “Cybertronic Purgatory” from her Chase Suite EP is sheer beauty: mad, dark, lush and melancholy. I’m in heaven. It seems that now the steam has run out of the whole “mashup” scene (or at least the novelty has worn thin) this is the latest trick – “slow downs”. In this case at least, it works.

Compare the original (and also amazing) version of the song here:
