The remix-happy outfit Wallpaper is having a kind of good stretch as the Internet’s rapid-ish response unit to musical events of note. Last week, they picked up Best New Music nod for their siren-blaring remix of “Combination Pizza Hut And Taco Bell”; today, they’re causing giggles by mashing together Jay-Z’s “Death Of Autotune” and “99 Problems” to make, you guessed it, a bleepy club-ready track that turns Jay’s voice into a shifting line of ones and zeroes. (I wonder if the Autotune-enhanced, Kanye-produced songs from Blueprint 3 that were ditched sound like this?) Embed after the jump. And be sure to check out the reaction to the track on Boing Boing Gadgets, where one of the commenters actually trots out the old saw about “(c)rap”!! When am I again? Wallpaper [MySpace]
