Mala – Changes (James Blake remix)

The DMZ pioneer's Essential Mix featured a spin for this sought-after rework.

15.04.13

On Friday night, Mala was in for a (probably overdue) turn in the Essential Mix hotseat. Frequently a hotbed for exclusives and track premieres, Mala’s two-hour mix was no exception, featuring a play for James Blake’s much anticipated take on Mala’s Changes – having previously only surfaced in live videos in questionable camera phone quality. First released on Deep Medi in 2007, the murky spaciousness of James’ remix feels in line with his previous Harmonimix output, and builds elegantly around that faceless vocal loop. Hear it in ripped form below, or head to the BBC site to stream it in full for the next five days.
