Kelis "Jerk Ribs" (Ben Pearce remix)
Published Feb 06, 2014Kelis wants us to gorge on her first Food single "Jerk Ribs," offering up yet another flavour variation of the song via a new remix from Brit producer Ben Pearce.
Like the previous revamp from Mount Kimbie, Pearce strips away the hot and spicy horn section to offer more club-geared rhythms. The track takes a de rigueur, early '90s house direction that likewise stamps out the swing of the original in favour of a slow-cooked arrangement of synths, a steady four-on-the-floor beats and mildly AutoTuned vocals.
It's a different kind of aural feast, and you can sample Pearce's remix down below.
As previously reported, Kelis's Food officially gets plated April 22 through Ninja Tune.
