Check Out Actress' New Remix of Kelis
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Adventurous R&B vocalist Kelis recently dropped her Food LP for Ninja Tune, a record whose tracks have already received remixes from Mount Kimbie, Machinedrum, and Breach. Now, Kelis' "Rumble" has received a rework from unpredictable electronic artist Actress.
Set to be released as its own single on May 27, Actress' remix pits the original track's impassioned vocal performance against a ghostly array of cascading synths and off-kilter rhythmic constructions. Actress' "Sixinium Bootleg Mix" of "Rumble" can be heard in full here, while the artwork for the upcoming 12"—which will also include an instrumental version of the rework—has been included below.
