In 2005, when M.A.N.D.Y. and Booka Shade first faced off, The FADER was fully caught up in Southern rap, grime and the first pop hints of a little group named Animal Collective, and yet we still recognized the Germans' "Body Language" as one for the ages. We even got excited when Will.i.am sampled it a couple years later. We are now a little older and much less excitable, except when the originators release new music themselves, as they will on February 9th with the new "Donut" single on Living The Dream. Along with the original and a radio edit, it features remixes by Boy 8 Bit, Logistics, Gui Boratto, Ben Hoo and James Talk, all of which you can hear bits of in this little mix right here, which actually just sounds like a six minute jam that we will ultimately take our shirts off to many times over the next year. Shade your eyes from the spectacle and download it below.
