Sampha "Without (Bodhi Remix)"
- Words: DeForrest Brown
Ahead of its as-yet-unannounced EP for Future Classic (which is apparently coming "very very soon"), garage-indebted UK duo Bodhi (pictured above) has shared a bootleg remix of "Without," a standout single from frequent SBTRKT collaborator Sampha's debut solo EP, Dual. The original version of the song was a head nodding and percussive R&B affair with strung-out guitar licks, but Bodhi's remix takes the track to a less emotive place, placing it firmly on the dancefloor. The hand drums and whorls of incandescent synths fill in the space behind Sampha's croons while the ever-present and plushy house groove keeps the tempo lively.
