Fear of a Brown Planet

Fear of a Brown Planet is an album of psychedelic Latin funk...covers? interpretations? celebrations! of classic Public Enemy joints by Austin's Brownout, previously noted for their Black Sabbath covers. It goes hard.

Curious what Chuck and Flav would sound like over this stuff? DJ Eclipse has you covered.

Oh hell yes

Brown Sabbath is the greatest collection of Sabbath covers this side of N.I.B 1, so I'm sure this is gonna rule

By the Time I Get to Arizona is straight-up nasty, and even more amazing considering both its original context and its re-contextualization in our present hellscape. Revolution in a bottle. Funk the Power.

If you like Brownout, you might also enjoy the El Michaels Affair doing Wu-Tang, Will Sessions doing Nas, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson doing Dilla, the Echocentrics doing Timbaland (I know I'm forgetting some of these, and would love to hear about more instrumental covers of hip-hop music)...

Oh man, this is just fantastic! Had not heard of Brownout and this is right up my alley. Perfect background for summer grilling and chilling!

Thank you for this! I just found out about Brownout last week, right after they played in my town. I wish I had seen them.
