Lianne La Havas "Forget (Laurel Halo Remix)"
- Words: Anthony Princi
Before kicking off her North American tour with Ital tonight in her hometown, Brooklyn-based artist Laurel Halo has just shared her remix of one of Lianne La Havas' all-too-familiar singles, "Forget." We've already featured a variety of Lianne La Havas remixes this year—including versions from Soul Clap, Ganggaddy, Maya Jane Coles, and Shlomo. Despite the array of talent among the remixers, Laurel Halo's take on "Forget" still manages to bring something different to the table. The track begins with an atmospheric pad that is coupled with the drone of cricket chirps, all of which slowly builds with the help of fluttering 16th-note percussion. An arpeggiated synth, rolling percussion, and a smooth sub-kick combo help solidify the beat before La Havas' soulful vocal melodies join the mix.
