MP3: The Death Set – “Yo David Chase, You P.O.V. Shot Me In The Head (feat. Diplo)”

The Death Set
Founded by Gold Coast natives, Johnny Siera and Beau Velasco, before relocating to Stringer Bell’s playground of Baltimore, The Death Set were on the verge of big things when their debut dropped in 2008 (as I’m sure anyone who caught their exclusive Australian shows with Santigold would attest).

So it was devestating when news of Velasco’s death emerged last year. Could the group survive without one of its core members? Would Siera even want to?

Luckily for us, Siera soldiered on and has revamped the line-up with longtime touring members, Daniel Walker and Jahphet Landis. He’s even recruited Spank Rock producer and Baltimore buddy, XXXChange, behind the boards to add even more layers to their distinctively hyperactive brand of spazz-punk.

Featuring a killer keyboard line from Diplo, “Yo David Chase, You P.O.V. Shot Me In The Head” is the first track to emerge from their eagerly-awaited 2011 album, ‘Michel Poiccard’. It’s quick. It’s chaotic. It glows with sonic pulses and gamma rays and Saturday morning cartoon colours. Munch this down with your Fruit Loops/ecstasy.
