Audio: Big Boi x Little Dragon x Jai Paul - "Higher Res"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.Big Boi - Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors (LP artwork)

With Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors right around the corner, Big Boi drops "Higher Res," one of the deluxe edition tracks featuring Little Dragon (whose unreleased studio version of "Mama Told Me" just hit the nets a few days ago) and mysterious British electronic artist Jai Paul (look him up if you've never heard of him, his catalog only goes back two songs). The combination of Little Dragon's synth-pop and Jai Paul's extra vocals leads to a mix that's more lo-fi than higher res but either way it definitely makes for an interesting collaboration. Seems like a lot of Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors takes Big Boi's style way out into leftfield, but we'll let you decide for yourself when the album hits stores tonight at midnight, right here. Drop out and tune in below.
