Ill Blu "Omar (Thefft Remix)"
- Words: Elissa Stolman
Yesterday, we reported that the UK-based DJ/production duo Ill Blu has an EP in the works for MadTech, and today we get a remix of one of its tunes from London up-and-comer Thefft (pictured above), a brutal and stomping rework of "Omar." The growing vocal sample (which, incidentally, comes from The Wire character who gives the tune its name) and heavily bouncing 808 tones are a good deal darker than "Switch," the breezy and clicking Thefft tune Oneman included in his recent Fabriclive 64 compilation. Thefft's remix arrives before Ill Blu's three original productions become available for purchase via Beatport next week.
