Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson & Solange Knowles

Another day, another genius-ass remix of a gem off Robert Glaspers Experiment‘s Black Radio LP. Today’s blessing comes from none other than el jefe himself, Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson, remixing the Experiment’s Little Dragon cover “Twice” with vocals by Solange Knowles and, of course, a little help from The Roots. ?uesto’s “Twice-Baked” remix gives the tender ballad a whole new footing, with cavernous drums and atmospheric temple bells that make it sound as if they recorded this jawn amidst the stone Buddhas at the caves of Ajanta. And that’s before the string trio comes in, transporting us to a whole other temple complex. Stream below and look for “Dillalude #2″–the final remix from the Black Radio Recovered remix EP, to debut right here this coming Monday, October 8th.

    Solange really has a nice voice. I’m glad that she really isn’t mainstream because she is allowed to experiment with any kind of sound. Love the song.
