It’s not often that we get a remix of someone so distinguished, much less one that gives a dose of modernism alongside a heightened level of respect for the inventiveness of the original. Today’s “chill-Trap” track takes the Empress of Soul’s monumental song “Grapevine” and adds dense synth layers and an inexorable snare beat to create a precedent for everything contemporary soul should be. The remixer Mr. Carmack is certainly no rookie when it comes to abstract variations on R&B and soul – if you like what you hear be sure to check out his daring take on Aaliyah’s “Are You That Somebody.”
