NYC rap crew Ratking, who are playing a mess of shows this week during CMJ, just remixed another King...UK artist King Krule. Their twist on his new single "Octopus" can be streamed below. Meanwhile, Ratking will release their Wiki93 EP via Hot Charity/XL Recordings on November 6.
RatKing are one of the many performers at the Saturday (10/20) BV day party at Public Assembly. While the full schedule hasn't been revealed (we know, we know, soon, soon!), they'll play at 3:40 PM in the back room. Other Saturday artists playing are Tashaki Miyaki and Eternal Summers.
Ratking's CMJ week begins tonight (10/18) at House of Vans for the Complex party that also features Action Bronson, Paul Banks and CMJ-buzz band Savages (who Bill loved last night at Glasslands). RSVP is now closed for that party.
If you aren't going tonight, Ratking also play the Yours Tru.ly party at Glasslands on Friday (10/19) with Joey Bada$$ (free w/ RSVP); then later Friday night (12:30 AM doors) for a FREE show at Mercury Lounge; then Saturday (10/19) again at Glasslands with Doldrums, Pictureplane (DJ) and more (tickets).
