Apologies for the pun — sometimes you just can’t resist. But it turns out to be the case on this excellent remix of Chance The Rapper‘s “All We Got” by SBTRKT. The song gets flipped so Kanye‘s auto-tuned vocals become the intro and the brass section is replaced by blaring bassy synths. By the time Chance comes in, they’re joined by a high-pitched female backing vocal not unlike the soprano “Oohs” and “Aahs” of the original Star Trek theme. The remix plays out a bit like SBTRKT decided to send Kanye and Chance to space. The result somehow lives up to the fun of that original premise as the UK producer repeatedly works his way into sonic corners and then blasts out of them with transitions that will have you boldly going to press play again and again.
