No Lay/Silkie "Unorthodox Daughter (Kingdom Refix)"
- Words: Patric Fallon
In celebration of his recently released EP for Night Slugs, That Mystic, which we previewed last week and is on sale now, NY's soulful bass music patron Kingdom (pictured above) hooked us up with this unreleased refix of the '05 grime tune "Unorthodox Daughter," by London MC No Lay and producer Silkie. The burgeoning DJ/producer tweaks the track a bit, tossing in some new sounds to Silkie's rhythm, adding a few extra dollops of bass frequency, and trading out No Lay's rapid-fire vocal delivery for snippets of soulful crooning from an entirely different song. It's not that it's better than the original, but Kingdom certainly transformed the song into something slightly more club-friendly and managed to make a five-year-old production sound like it was made last week.
