Death Grips, who have just released their major label debut, 'The Money Store', were recently heralded by Bjork, who said to the Guardian that she admired their "Intense rapping, lyrics and lush beats. It's all good… Mostly I don't listen to experimental rap but in between there are gems, the same with all music genres."

Death Grips recently remixed 'Thunderbolt' and 'Sacrifice' from Bjork's 'Biophilia' project.
