I received an email from Sam Hillmer (ZS, Diamond Terrifier) about a week ago that simply read: “Yo! I’ve got this mixtape I made of DT [Diamond Terrifier] rippin it over Terrible Records artist tracks, I cover Solange, it’s crazy.” I knew I had to hear it. Secondly, anytime anyone prefaces and email with “Yo!” I can generally assume I’m going to like what follows. If you are unfamiliar with Hillmer’s work, in a nutshell, he makes mind melting experimental Saxophone music (See our live session with ZS shot a few years ago for a crash course). This mixtape “How To Wrap a Crown” is in celebration of DT’s latest LP ‘THE SUBTLE BODY WEARS A SHADOW’ (Record release show: May 20th @ Public Assembly w/ Amen Dunes [NY] see flier below).
Hillmer had a few words to say about the mixtape:
“Upon signing with Terrible we decided that contextualizing my work in terms of other artists in the Terrible catalog would be a good idea. So! I got a lot of instrumentals, and I witled it down to what is posted here. I have always wanted to run wild on a bunch of different pop related stuff, so here I am doing it! Saxophone Juke is a genre I’ve been meaning to invent, and covering the pitched down Solange was a special privilege! I hope y’all dig it!” We do!
