Any track featuring DOOM is going to be an event. Now match him with the ever-inventive, producing-savant Flying Lotus and you have a match made in heaven. See “Between Villains” for their latest pairing, part of Adult Swim’s music catalog. Here DOOM finally washes away many fans disappoints with his uninspired, lazy flows of late for two sped-up, beat-blazing verses that breath new life into the two decade-old rapper. This is accomplished in large part thanks to Flying Lotus’ rhythmic production, churning drum loops and atmospheric highs match with DOOM’s trademarked monotone voice. Soaring synth collages signal the end of each bar, as simple, direct twinkling snaps and claps mold underneath DOOM’s brewing voice. For fans longing of the pair’s next mash-up, “Masquatch” delivers in all sorts of ways. Flying Lotus has been the lone producer of late to succeed in rising DOOM out of his slumber to instill fiery unique, lavishly dank, and murky-ridden verses that complement the You’re Dead! producer so well. The track, so perfect for a late-night drive down the cityscape whilst being featured on the Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack, eerily sways and suspiciously slithers around, bleak, uncompromising, supremely villain-like. If DOOM is still able to pull bars like this there’s no telling where his career can go if he ever so chooses to get it lifted off the ground.
