Native Underground "Night Vision (Jimmy Edgar Remix)"
Henry Maldonado (a.k.a. Son of Sound) and recording artist Javi Silva are the men behind Brooklyn-based vocal electro duo Native Underground. Reared in New York's underground music scene, Maldonado first made a name for himself during the late '80s and early '90s by releasing cuts on various esteemed US house labels such as Strictly Rhythm, MAW, and King Street. It wasn't until 2009 that he would meet future partner Javi Silva while auditioning male vocalists for a new project. The collaboration came to fruition with the release of "Til it Hurts" in 2010 and now the pair has released a new single, "Night Vision," on Under the Shade. The new record features remix work from Ultracity, Iron Curtis, and Brennan Green. Here, the group has offered up a free download of the prodigious Jimmy Edgar's (pictured above) disco-house-inspired rework of "Night Vision." Known for his sultry beats, unrivaled production technique, and eclectic taste, Edgar manipulates Silva's vocals and turns them into a syncopated rhythm of syllables and phonemes. Take a listen to his handiwork and also check out the video for the original version of "Night Vision" after the jump.
