SBTRKT unveils remix of Adele’s ‘Chasing Pavements’
Pop sensation Adele has broken her long and quiet hiatus with her latest studio offering, 25. The initial reception has been voracious, with fans elated to have Adele back as she offers what some believe to be her best work yet. Records are waiting to be broken behind the new album’s appeal, but producers in the dance space have already been salivating over new groundwork for remix efforts. Rather than hitting the laptop and churning out a quick remix, long-time masked beatmaker SBRTKT has proven once again to be ahead of the curve.
Before the impending wave of Adele theme’d remixes and reworks begins to really roll in, the BBC Radio host took to his show to reveal a rework of the UK pop queen’s “Chasing Pavements” that has been kept under wraps since 2008. Static synths buzz around isolated vocal chops, accompanied by airy drum arrangements and punchy hi-hat accents.
