Next week, Illogic & Blockhead will release their first collaborative full-length album, Capture The Sun. The album, which includes features from Slug, Blueprint, Abstract Rude, and more, will be released on TK via Man Bites Dog Records, and today, Illogic & Blockhead are debuting a non-album exclusive remix of album track “Live From the Horizon.” The song was remixed by fellow DJ/producer, and Columbus, Ohio, native, RJD2 and was premiered by Rolling Stone.


RJD2’s remix is a complete reimagining of the song. The song gets transformed from a punchy and aggressive vendetta into a trippy reflection. “I was really excited with the direction RJ took the remix,” remarked Blockhead. “It’s cool when someone flips the entire vibe of a song on it’s back, ’cause it basically feels like creating an entire new song.” That sort of 180-degree change is possible because of the songs subject matter – mistrust and falling out with friends. “When close friends treat you like crap for a while then songs like Live from the Horizon are born,” Illogic explains. “Blueprint told me most great art can’t exist with out Pain.” For RJD2′s part, the collaboration was a nice reunion with Illogic, the two having spent years working in the same underground scene. “Illogic and I cut our teeth at roughly the same time in the Columbus underground,” recalls RJ. “We’ve know each other for a long time, and it was cool to reconnect on this remix.”
