"A fusion of Tigerbeat6's pop destruction and 2ManyDJs' mainstream mash-ups." -URB
"Girl Talk...accelerates beats, distorts textures, pitches up flow, and sets up strange juxtapositions to render absurd the sexed-up aura of hip-hop and dance pop." - CLEVELAND SCENE
"In a time when kids can barely sit through an entire album by just one artist, this A.D.D. mix will keep them sedated and/or spastic." - XLR8R
Girl Talk (a.k.a. Gregg Gillis) is back with his third album on Illegal Art! With each release getting closer to his notorious semi-naked live show, Night Ripper is focused less on beat-fuckery and more on bringing heat to the party. It bangs as a continuous mix packed with wildly disparate Top 40 genres and eras. Current hip-hop hits, soft rock radio standards, party classics, grunge masterpieces, R&B singles, glossy club-shakers and rock anthems are all layered and pieced together into one nonstop celebration of pop and excess declared "a plunderphonics party record" by Mark Hosler of Negativland.
Girl Talk tours regularly and actively participates and collaborates with other "on the verge" Midwest and East Coast artists such as Grand Buffet (Fighting), Drop the Lime (Tigerbeat6), Chris Glover (Interscope) and Hearts of Darknesses (Schematic/Asphodel).
