P5hng Me A*wy (Mike Shinoda Reanimation) [feat. Stephen Richards]
Label: Warner Bros.
For Reanimation, Linkin Park employ a host of DJs to remix tracks from their platinum-selling debut, Hybrid Theory. Far more than a stopgap between “proper” releases, it covers an astonishing amount of sonic terrain. They chose collaborators wisely: The Alchemist, KutMasta Kurt, DJ Cheapshot and AmpLive are all top talents culled from the ranks of underground hip-hop. One of the record’s most vital experiments is a rambunctious reimaging of “With You” (titled “Wth>You”) courtesy of turntablist Chairman Hahn, who roped in the extremely gifted MC Aceyalone.
