Floating Points has delivered a stunning remix of Thundercat’s collab-heavy track “Fair Chance.”
Featuring Ty Dolla $ign and Lil B, “Fair Chance” immediately stood out as a highlight of Thundercat’s latest album, It is What it is. It was additionally a track that was written as a tribute to the late Mac Miller.
Under Floating Points’ careful direction, has been “Fair Chance” turned into a stunning dance track via crisp percussion and warbling synths that ride the forefront. Another It is What it is cut, “Dragonball Durag,” was also remixed recently by Smino and Guapdad 4000 into an extended hip-hop focused composition.
To celebrate the new version of “Fair Chance,” Thundercat has released a limited-run vinyl in both red and black, available via Bandcamp, that contains the album version of “Fair Chance,” Floating Points’ remix, an acapella interpretation and an instrumental cut.
Floating Points released his sophomore LP Crush just over a year ago. Although he has stayed mostly silent throughout 2020, the producer has also remixed Caribou’s “Never Come Back” and “Sister.”
