Gareth Malone's Voices album - who are the original artists?
5. Guillotine - Death Grips
Absolutely the most surprising inclusion for Gareth Malone's Voices album is this radical interpretation of hip-hop duo Death Grips' song 'Guillotine'. The original is a confrontational, acerbic and aggressive rush of hip-hop, but Malone's version turns it into a cascading choral showpiece, complete with bare electronic beats. It doesn't bear a huge resemblance to the original, but it just goes to show what's possible with a choir and a bit of imagination.
