After first hitting it off at this year’s South by Southwest music festival, James Blake and Chance The Rapper come together for a remix to Blake’s chilling track “Life Round Here.” Neither of the two artists are strangers to genre-blending collaborations, Blake’s involvement with RZA and Kanye West has been well-documented, and, while they may reside under the radar, Chance’s work with the likes of Lorine Chia, The O’My’s and Milo & Otis are definitely worth a quick google search. Here the Acid Rapper adds a whole new element to the Overgrown album standout, and after pressing play you’ll be glad to know the two are currently filming a music video for the track in Europe. See what Blake had to say about how the remix came about below, and let us know what you think of the track in the comment section.
I really like his mixtape [Acid Rap] and saw him at South by Southwest, I just thought his voice would work really well. I never felt the track was finished, even when it went on the album, I always thought there was space for something else.
