Song Therapy: DJ Shadow and Afrikan Boy shoot gamma rays … into your ears!
“I’m Excited” by DJ Shadow
The hip-hop pioneer teams up with Afrikan Boy for a wacked-out video, months in advance of his new album (20 percent of which has leaked, just do a quick search). The song itself sounds the way Nine Inch Nails might have sounded if Trent Reznor ever tried his hand at party music. It’s the audio embodiment of the title sentiment. It’s frantic, out of control and it will make you want to pogo up and down and/or rob a gas station.
