1-800-DINOSAUR Presents: James Blake & Chance The Rapper - "Life Round Here" (Remix)

James Blake is a London-based First Wave Dubstep super-producer; one of the genre's originators, before it got all Americanized, club-ready, and alcohol-infused (ie: Skrillex ha). Blake has always kinda seemed like an on-looking Hip-Hop supporter/closet fan... he actually unleashed a series of white label 12" Harmonimix[es] prior to his self-titled debut: Lil' Wayne, Destiny's Child, Snoop Dogg, and handsome hermit D'Angelo. After working with master swordsman RZA on his second album Overgrown, James Blake recently recruited hyper-rhyming Chicago upstart, Chance The Rapper to help remix "Life Round Here." It's supposedly the "first of many songs with @jamesblake," if Chance The Rapper's righteous Twitter feed is to be believed; Blake told Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe Tuesday morning that the track was re-recorded post-SXSW and lamented that "[He] never really felt the track was finished; even when it went on the album, [he] just felt there was this space." Noisey will soon release "Life Round Here"'s companion music video, which they can assure will include "everything from horses to Somalian pirates and Chevy Impalas." It's amazing how flawless and exceedingly far from phoned-in this remix sounds, especially considering it was re-recorded after the fact!
