Avey Tare (David Portner) and Deacon (Josh Dibb) of Animal Collective have remixed and added vocals to Shabazz Palaces' "#CAKE."

(Listen below.)

The new track is titled "Animal Collective Premature Deflirt Mix" and features a visualizer from Christian Peterson of I Want You magazine. The original version of "#CAKE" appeared Shabazz Palace's Lese Majesty, which was released in July.

Shabazz Palaces, the Seattle duo comprised of ex-Digable Planets member Ishmael Butler and producer Tendai Maraire, have been turning critics' heads with their unique and futuristic blend of hip-hop.

Their latest, Else Majesty, roughly translates to "offending the royalty" and was divided into seven different suites, an ambitious concept for any genre and entirely unheard of in hip-hop.

Animal Collective's latest, Centipede HZ, was released September 4th, 2012 through Domino Records.
