Ursa's Reef "Pacific State (808 State Cover)"

Young Portuguese producer Ursa's Reef sent over this cover of 808 State's classic "Pacific State" with a note saying, "No version can beat that original, I'm aware of that, but you wouldn't believe how incredibly fun it was [to make] and how ecstatic I felt when I hit those chords by mistake!" What's more, this version of the tune sounds as reverential and organic as its creator's statement makes it out to be; over the immediately recognizable bird sample, Ursa's Reef drops rounded 808 beats and gradually expanding synth pads which effortlessly evoke the original tune's ethereal sound.
