Published Jan 06, 2015Toronto rapper Ian Kamau is breathing new life into a handful of tracks from his 2011 LP One Day Soon, having tapped U.S. soul figure Georgia Anne Muldrow to contribute to the Heading Home remix EP.
The three song re-envisioning starts off with the title cut, which has been modified by toning down the original's frizz-fried direction in favour of a mostly organic groove. Muldrow adds to the tune with a booming vocal hook about "trying to get ahead" in a complicated world.
Elsewhere, Muldrow delivers an ambient and airy remix of Kamau's introspective "The Village," and likewise scrapes buzzy electronic instrumentation out of "Traffic."
You'll find the remix EP down below and on Bandcamp.
