Dubstep is the music of the dystopian future. Accordingly, in this dub-inflected electro-hop track, frequent Grimes collaborator Blood Diamonds paints a sparkly-pink-and-blue metropolis with a dark, seedy underbelly, made even darker by Harlem rapper Dominic Lord’s pronouncement that he’s coming for you with an AK-47.

I wouldn’t by any stretch of the imagination call this song “feel good.” It’s tense and anxious with comically bright sonic textures, a formula whose solution can be alternately creepy or totally rad. In this case it’s both.

Check out the Fader’s behind the scenes video to see how this epic collab went down.
