Taylor McFerrin & Anderson .Paak Give Hiatus Kaiyote’s “Laputa” A Stellar Remix
Off the Melbourne band’s ‘Recalibrations Vol. 1’.
Ahead of their upcoming EP release Recalibrations Vol.1, Hiatus Kaiyote is handing out a series of remixes from last year’s Choose Your Weapon project.
Included on the project is an impressive spin of the album’s standout “Laputa,” courtesy of experimental producer Taylor McFerrin and breakout artist Anderson .Paak. Taylor adds a layer of soul and synths, while Anderson slides through near end to round out the stellar production.
“People are so familiar with a lot of our stuff that wasn’t documented yet,” singer Nai Palmtold Billboard. “We were like, we should probably document our shit before someone like releases fucking ‘Building A Ladder’ and is like, ‘Hey, it’s our song!’… But then, you’ve gotta keep it interesting. We’re constantly challenging ourselves in writing and reworking shit too.”
Along with the remix, Hiatus Kaiyote is also sharing a string of upcoming summer tour dates that will send the Melbourne-based quartet from coast to coast. Listen to the remix and check out the line-up dates below.
