While most DJs and producers tend to focus on the latest hits for their remixes, under his Harmonimix moniker, James Blake likes to revisit classics from the not-so-distant past. He’s taken on D’Angelo’s “Left & Right,” for example, and Lil Wayne’s “A Milli.”
In 2010, he also released a remix of Destiny’s Child smash “Bills, Bills, Bills” in limited-edition vinyl, and he apparently liked the remix enough that this week he’s decided to share it on his 1-800-Dinosaur SoundCloud page, as a free download.
The glitchy remix is probably more for James Blake fans than fans of Destiny’s Child. (That is, where they don’t overlap.) In fact, it’s as much a cover and a duet as a remix, with Blake singing the chorus alongside sped-up samples of the original Destiny’s Child vocals. It preserves the bouncy rhythm of the original song, but brings it up to speed for the 2010s.
