As much as we don’t like to think about it, death is inevitable. While inescapable, though, we certainly don’t want to leave the Earth in the wrong way, which is why I personally avoid snakes and heights as much as possible. On the flip side, I think death by music overload wouldn’t be such a bad ending. Clinton Sparks knows what I’m talking about, per his remix of a 2011 Knife Party single, which might just cause said overdose. On Internet Friends (The Die Trap), the first release off of his My Awesome Mixtape 4, Sparks meshes some Dubstep with a slight hint of trap and an ominous “die” sample to create this brain melting, potent jam. To assist in the ear-assassination New York veteran Jim Jones contributes a raw, fast paced verse over the top of the ever-changing production. If you happen to survive the stream, be sure to cop Sparks’ My Awesome Mixtape 4, which features the likes of 2 Chainz and Snoop Lion, dropping on Valentines Day 2013.
