MK delivers house take of Sam Smith’s ‘Pray’ [Stream]
Sam Smith’s smooth vocals settle in nicely on house tracks. Disclosure knew it and exemplified it on “Latch,” and now, MK proves that he too has noted the fluid electronic crossover potential inherent in Smith’s voice on his remix of Smith’s song, “Pray.”
MK doubles down minute wise on his house oriented take of the track that originally appeared on Smith’s 2017 album, The Thrill Of It All. Extending the length of his revamp, and situating it just past the six-minute mark, MK reworks “Pray” in his addition of reverberating—and at times, subtly trumpeting synths—and percussive elements that lend a sense of rhythm to MK’s vision. These same rhythmically constituting components resurface in the moments in which the remix builds, aiding the pulsating drop that elevates MK’s remix to the status of a bonafide club pleaser.
