After the release of his It Is What It Is in April this year, Thundercat has released a new remix of Fair Chance, his collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign and Lil B.
Remixed by much loved British producer Floating Points, the sombre track was explicitly dedicated to the memory of Mac Miller who tragically passed away in 2018. The remix sees Floating Points nudge the ballad onto the dancefloor, creating a euphoric rework that nods to vintage 4x4 UKG. A maxi 12” single backed with ‘Fair Chance (feat. Ty Dolla $ign & Lil B)’ original, instrumental and acapella is available to preorder now and will be released on December 18.
The musical project of bassist / singer Stephen Bruner, Thundercat reached acclaim earlier this year with his fourth studio album It Is What It Is. The GRAMMY award winner has collaborated with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, N.E.R.D., Erykah Badu, Herbie Hancock, Childish Gambino, Mac Miller, Anderson .Paak, Janelle Monáe, BADBADNOTGOOD, Moses Sumney, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Wiz Khalifa, Robert Glasper, Kamasi Washington, Travis Scott, Little Simz, Louis Cole, and Shabazz Palaces in addition to his longtime writing partner Flying Lotus.
Fair Chance (feat. Ty Dolla $ign & Lil B) [Floating Points Remix] is out now! Listen to the track below.
