Spoek Mathambo x Seinabo Sey 'Younger (Remix)'

Spoek Mathambo adds typewriter sampling and a UK garage feel to 'Younger', the atmospheric slow burner from Sweden's Seinabo Sey

Swedish soul songstress Seinabo Sey's latest track "Younger" has been remixed by SA afrofuturist Spoek Mathambo. The 23 year old singer songwriter who featured as MTV Iggy's 'Artist of the Week' released her stunning video for the track a few months back and recently dropped the Younger remix EP featuring reworks from Kygo, Tiedye and Okayafrica favourite Spoek Mathambo. Spoek uses typewriter audio samples and pitched up vocals to take this introspective pop-soul ballad into UK-Garage-esque territory.  The result is a chopped up concoction of strings, skittering beats and hypnotic vocal lines. Stream the original and Spoek Mathambo's percussive remix below.
