Danger Mouse—Scanner MP3

The act known as Scanner (aka Robin Rimbaud) maintains a good track record of posting new free music most months, and the first such MP3 of 2005 is a bit of one of his dance scores (Nemesis, written for the Random Dance ensemble), remixed by DJ Danger Mouse (mastermind of the headline-making Grey Album). Apparently Danger Mouse did this “long before” Grey Album. It’s a six-plus-minute piece, uncharacteristically melodic for Scanner, even romantic, along the lines of a Hollywood spygame score, and run through with percussive elements.
