Hi all. Just thought I'd point your attention towards an excellent remix album.

You like hip-hop? You also like indie-pop of the likes of Sufjan Stevens. Perhaps you've been alienated by fans of both genres? Well now you can combine you love of both by downloading Illinoize - a Sufjan Stevens remix album, featuring songs from his back catalog mixed with some phat beats and featuring samples from Gift of Gab amongst others. Here's the spiel.

Illinoize is a free remix tape put together by Montreal-based producer Tor, sampling songs from multi-instrumentalist and indie hero, Sufjan Stevens. Tracks are sampled from his 2005 LP Illinoise, as well as 3 of his other albums, 'A Sun Came', 'Seven Swans' and 'Songs for Christmas', blending Sufjan Steven's acoustic guitar, piano and horns with MC's Aesop Rock, Big Daddy Kane, Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), C.L. Smooth, Outkast, Brother Ali, and Grand Puba.

Best of all it is free. Do it.
