Was about to post this breathtaking Laura Mvula remix from OKP favorite Robin Hannibal of Quadron, Owusu & Hannibal and now Rhye fame…I say ‘was about to’ but Okayafrica beat me to it. Sidebar: we stay having territorial disputes over Laura Mvula in the Okayplayer office, bickering over whether she is more UKplayer or Okayafrican and who deserves to hang out with her and write about her music. Looks like OKA won (THIS ROUND!) but…oh, yes. She will be mine. Anyway, here’s what they had to say (scroll down to stream the dope remix):
UK songstress Laura Mvula‘s lush and beautifully arranged single “She” gets a stripped-down remix from Rhye/Quadron producer Robin Hannibal, who takes things to “Open” sensual levels by bathing the original in layers of warm synthesizers. Mvula’s debut album Sing To The Moon — which features “She” alongside standout singles “Green Garden” and “That’s Alright” — is streaming in its entirety over at NPR. Stream Robin Hannibal’s remix below.
