Neneh Cherry – Everything (Villalobos & Loderbauer: Vilod high blood pressure mix)

Having not really thought about Neneh Cherry for years she seems to have somehow worked her way back into my musical consciousness. I unearthed a copy of her seminal Buffalo Stance Remix 12” in a charity shop last week and then her new LP is reviewed in this month’s copy of the Wire magazine.

It sent me searching online for new tunes and I uncovered this amazing Richard Villalobos and Max Loderbauer remix of her track Everything on Soundcloud. Everything closes the new LP Blank Project and has been released as the second single. The original as 7:21 is hardly likely to bring her back to the charts but it’s a great track.

The rattling electronic prime evil swampy trip-hop of the original (supplied by electronic duo Rocketnumbernine and Kieran Four Tet Hebden production) has been stripped back and replaced by a lovely pulsing bassline, slow mo rhythmic ticks and the vocal cut, sliced and diced across the mix in a series of grunts, sighs and vocal tics and generally dub it up brilliantly.

Have a listen below:
