Billie Holiday- My Man (Toro Y Moi Remix)

Southern songster and electronic producer Chaz Bundick (Toro Y Moi) offers up a glitchy spaced out treatment of “My Man” by the infallible Billie Holiday for Verve‘s The First Ladies: Remixed compilation. Chaz compliments the distorted and displaced chops of Billie’s raw voice with his synthesized southern hospitality, building a bridge to the notorious jazz vocalist’s repertoire and bringing her well into the 21st century. The album boasts remixes of every queen of jazz’s luminary  past including Nina Simone, Dinah Washington, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald and Marlena Shaw by the likes of virtually every heavy hitting EDM producer the world over. Featuring pervasive electronic producers like Kaskade, Bassnectar, Miike Snow and Pretty Lights, the eclectic mix of classic and contemporary is available now on iTunes, so go cop that and peep the John Henry Hazeltine directed video for Toro Y Moi’s remix of Billie Holiday’s “My Man” below.
