Throwing Shade – We Belong Together (remix)

Mariah Carey gets a mutant garage rework from the shady London producer.

Throwing Shade, aka London-based producer and NTS DJ Nabihah Iqbal, makes dance music that occupies a groggy, mystic place, surrounding her house-inflected beats with shadows of R&B vocal and surreal field recordings. On her new remix of Mariah Carey's undoubtable tune We Belong Together (which you can stream above or download here), Iqbal pitches the lead vocal down a peg or two and sporadically injects it with a dusty garage beat, both bringing it closer to the dancefloor and further away from the norm.
