Honey & Badger surprise delivers tech-house spin on Flume, Laurel’s ‘I Can’t Tell’
Barely a week removed from Palaces coming out, Honey & Badger previewed a new rework for his favorite track from Flume’s album. And although he had no immediate plans as to what he would do with it, the Dancing Astronaut Artist to Watch in 2022‘s Instagram comment section was overtaken by a flurry of comments calling for him to deliver it, leading to a surprise post less than two weeks later with a SoundCloud and Audius link that directed to his take on Flume and Laurel’s “I Can’t Tell.”
We’d already seen how seamlessly Palaces was able to translate into house form through Tchami‘s “Say Nothing” rework and Honey & Badger does his part to confirm that once again. And even though he didn’t receive the actual stems from Flume, it sounds as close to an official undertaking as sonically possible, swapping out Flume’s future bass-trap framework and guiding Laurel’s “I Can’t Tell” vocals with his own sweltering package of tech-house to give house DJs the opportunity to add more Palaces music in their sets.
