Run The Jewels, the collaboration between ATL spitter Killer Mike and NY beat genius El-P, has been a heaven sent for fans of both artists as well as themeselves. Having released two unique LP:s since 2012 ("R.A.P. Music", and the self-titled "Run The Jewels") which have proven to be not only the best Killer Mike projects yet, but also the most interesting hip-hop thing El-Producto has been involved in since the masterpiece that was Cannibal Ox's "The Cold Vein". Originally released as a free digital download, "Run The Jewels" was pressed up on CD and vinyl in June via Fool's Gold Records. Originally consisting of 10 tracks with a mere running time of 32 minutes, a new deluxe edition for the European market kicks up the ante with two bonus tracks. You already heard the Dave Sitek's "Sea Legs" remix but the real treat comes with the newly recorded monster of a track called "Pew Pew Pew" - which besides progressively agressive production from El-P and matchingly hostile flow from K.M. also features the mega talented DJ Q-Bert tearing it up on the 1:s and 2:s.
"Run The Jewels - Deluxe Edition" is released on both wax and compact disc by the European label Big Dada. The three bonus tracks, which also includes a Blue Sky Black Death remix of "36" Chain", is released on a separate accompanying 12" which also includes previously unreleased instrumentals (or crammed after the original 10 songs on the CD edition). If you already have picked up the album you can also purchase the 12" of new material separately for £7 which is a pretty fair price.
