Broken Ankles, the collaborative EP from the sonically hectic producer Greg Gillis, aka Girl Talk, and the forever-on-the-comeup Philadelphia rapper Freeway does both artists the great service of highlighting their strengths. Left to his own devices, Girl Talk’s music tends toward the leadfooted and obvious. Similarly Freeway, without significant inspiration, can sound deflated and rote. Both of them are at their peak on this remix of “Suicide” (which also gets an assist from A$AP Ferg). Gillis provides a production that sounds like a choir of ghost children, subtle and distant enough that Freeway and Ferg can tear through it with little difficulty.
