Kendra Morris is proud to announce the release of an exclusive remix of her new single, 'Concrete Waves', by renowned producer DJ Premier, who recently provided a sensational re-working of Disclosure's 'Latch' for their remix album.
The inspired remix premiered exclusively on Huw Stephens' BBC Radio 1 show, and has since received coveted airplay by fellow Radio 1 DJ Toddla T, as well as securing its first digital outing on Mixmag, who say: "The rework oozes that quintessential DJ Premier sound and combines Morris' outstanding vocals with a tight new groove".
DJ Premier, previously one half of hip hop duo Gang Starr, has stayed true to the song's soulful roots, giving it a masterful twist that enhances Kendra's seductive voice with slick beats and deep grooves.
The original track, the lead single from Morris' forthcoming February 10th album 'Banshee', received an exclusive airing by Lauren Laverne on her BBC 6 Music show, as well as making it onto her personal playlist, and was recently premiered on Indie Shuffle.
Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music "I absolutely love this track, I love it, I think it has a very cinematic, David Holmes-y feel. We do hope to hear more of her in 2014."
Indie Shuffle "This innovative artist is really on to something. With the original arrangements of instrumentals, the off-kilter sounds work in an oddly obscure approach, which makes for a delightfully refreshing mix of R&B, dark pop soul, and independent musings. The only thing I’m left wondering is why I haven’t heard of her sooner!"
Kendra will be performing at Stoke Newington's Servant Jazz Quarters on Thursday 27th February. Let me know what you think of the track and if you'd be interested in coming along to the gig.
