"(Don't Spill Your Drink) I Got Burberry On" was recorded in October in what I can only imagine was one of the haziest rooms on the planet. According to Eric Lee Gale, half of Sich Mang, the project was abandoned because it sounded "too hip-hoppy." If it weren't for this blog post, the song would've never seen the light of day, which really is too bad—the collision of these gigantic personalities results in pure musical joy. Beginning with a lighthearted swagger and transforming into a glitchy, trippy blur of samples and what sound like eight-part harmonies, this is essentially an alternate-universe Top 40 version of the Sich Mang that Chicagoans know and love.
The demo is rough and unmixed, but still great. If you dig this track, take a look at more of Benjamin's material—some of the most ridiculously fun songs that'll ever grace your ears.
