Red Bull's 20 Before 15 series has already resulted in some pretty dope music (after all, they gave us our first taste of D'angelo's "Sugah Daddy") and for today's grand finale, they decided to post not one, but four exclusive new tracks from various artists, including Mumdance, Ossie, an Inky and Mala collaboration, and—fuck yes— an ILoveMakonnen vs. Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend and SBTRKT) vs. Despot remix of "Down 4 So Long."

Makonnen, the Grammy-nominated, Noisey Top Tracks of 2014-slaying new addition to Drake's OVO crew, trades off verses with smooth-voiced Vampire Weekend singer Ezra Koenig and Queen's own Smart Crew affiliate Despot. The result is mellow, sad, and wicked dark—it's basically goth-rap, and it totally works.

Listen to it below. Today, we are all truly shmoney dancing with some goth teens.
