Favorite Collaborations

Roadie

I'm interested in hearing people's favorite one-off collaborations.  I'm going to start this game with Crystal Castles - Not In Love, featuring Robert Smith from The Cure on vocals.  I pretty much play this tune every time I DJ 🙂

Great topic, although I'm going to have a hard time thinking of something better than that Castles/Smith collab!

 

Here, Thom Yorke joins Bjork on a track for her 'Dancer In The Dark' soundtrack, Selmasongs.

@BenitoKCM, great choice. I actually prefer this robert smith mix of the song...but really, i love both versions. We could probably turn this into an all collaborations with Robert Smith discussion 🙂

Great mix!!! Closer to The Cure than the one I posted.

Great topic! It's so hard to choose from so many choices.

 

Here are two songs that I think are fabulous collaborations.

Surely: contrast - though perhaps novel - is an instant hook.

Wu-Tang rapping rather aggressively over a "hippie-type beat (and chorus/refrain)" provided by Texas is the perfect complement to Anthrax and Public Enemy's Bring Tha Noize (mentioned earlier). 

You know it's a special collab when the two artists agree on a portmanteau of their two acts' names; GRiZ and Gramatik joined forces as GRiZMATiK to bring us... future-funk? Pretty special.

Self vs Self combines Pendulum's poppy sensibilities with In Flames' intense vocals and metal - the title implies conflict but, even so, we still win.
