Rainbow Arabia "Kabukimono (Pictureplane's Negative Slave Re-Work)"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo

Last fall, LA duo Rainbow Arabia remixed a song from Pictureplane, and now the bedazzled, Denver-based artist has returned the favor. Taken from an upcoming free remix EP, Pictureplane's version of "Kabukimono" slows down the original, running Rainbow Arabia's electro-exoticism through a gritty, lo-fi filter and ultimately creating something with a little more punch. You could say that this is art-school-warehouse-global-lo-fi-rave-bass music, but that sounds like a fucking nightmare. This song is actually good.
