Anytime Snakehips releases a new song, it’s basically a vacation, because anything from the impervious UK duo is destined to be great. So when the the brand-new Snakehips remix of 17-year-old poet, rapper, singer, ATL babe Raury’s (who had to get his mothers permission to go and record with SBTRKT for the upcoming Wonder Where We Land album) ‘Cigarette Song’ came to our attention we promptly got very excited.
Snakehips manages to maintain the original tracks dreamy vibes, and Raury’s warm and emotional vocals, highlighted against a backdrop of serene piano and subtle electronics, while injecting the song with a newfound electronic and percussive energy.
So stop whatever you’re doing, and listen to this delightful remix, stripped of its soothing, mellow acoustics.
Snakehips new single ‘Days With You’ is set to be released later this month on the new Hoffman West label.
