Ibeyi "Stranger/Lover" (Mark Ronson Re-fix)
Published Dec 07, 2015In case you felt that Ibeyi were lacking a little bit of uptown funk on their debut self-titled LP, big-time producer Mark Ronson has nobly come to the rescue. You can hear what he dubs a "re-fix" of the pair's "Stranger/Lover" online now.
Though the original had plenty of bump and bite, Ronson brings a party feel to his rendition, which ups the tempo and slaps '80s electro-funk wriggles and plinking guitars into the mix. Brassy backups are also streaming throughout the cut, offering a much different approach than Ibeyi's original.
Wanna know if this "re-fix" is hot enough to make a dragon retire, man? You can stream the revamp below, courtesy of FADER. The single goes up for sale tomorrow (December 8), along with a "Stranger/Lover" remix by Mura Masa.
