Ghostpoet "Liiines (xxxy Remix)"
Earlier this month, we tipped you to Ghostpoet's forthcoming single, "Liiines," the latest to be released from his debut LP, Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Soul. Eager fans will be happy to know that the London-based MC (and former Bubblin' subject) has slipped us a teaser in the form of "Liiines (xxxy's remix)." Overseeing a complete overhaul, London-based producer xxxy—who just a few weeks ago turned in a stellar XLR8R podcast—removes the Springsteen-esque guitar opera of the original and places Ghostpoet's vocal track over a clubby, UK funky rhythm, complete with a snare-led drum pattern, dubby bassline, and pitched-up vocals. Ghostpoet's "Liiines" comes out September 5 on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood imprint.
