Audio Premiere: DJ Sun - "Heart Seed" f/ Leah Alvarez (Yppah Remix)
Soulful electro-rock thing Yppah–AKA Joe Corrales, Jr.–just dropped this remix of DJ Sun‘s scintillating “Heart Seed” featuring Leah Alvarez on us. Kicking up both the tempo and the atmospherics a notch, Yppah arrives at a groove that has less noodle-y Latin soul flourishes but packs a much stronger nod-factor with this rework (side note: world premiere!). With the infectious loop and dubby zone-out moments, in fact, its kind of begging for an MC, deejay or sonidero to add their bars. As it is, perfect road-trip music and if you’re in the mood for a drive, scroll down for DJ Sun’s newly announced North American tour dates. We’re excited to hear more from Yppah, seems like just one of a bunch of cool things Ninja Tune has in the works these days, so be prepared to schedule in some more road trips (and nod-outs) soon.
