Little Dragon – Twice (Freddie Joachim Remix)


Two of the most soulful forces in the universe collide on this mindblower of a remix. Freddie Joachim is one of our fav remixers; his work with tracks from Alicia Keys, Nas, and Esthero are just a few of his mixes we’ve covered. Little Dragon’s “Twice” is a personal fav here at b3sci so link up Freddie and with it and you’re talking some serious shit. The beat in the mix is sort of reminiscent of 90’s R&B, the thin snare, the busy hi-hats (think Darkchild). The added synth layers introduce, among other stylistic elements, jazz tones with tinges of vibraphone. Over the added instrumentation, Yukimi’s voice takes on this other-worldly quality. What was once this earthy, visceral, elemental thing is transformed and transported.
