French-Cuban twins Lisa-Kainde and Naomi Diaz, aka Ibeyi, recently released their acclaimed eponymous debut album. This caught the ears of Mark Ronson who instead of remixing "Stranger/Lover", decided to work with the girls to recreate or 're-fix' it. The result is an 80s funk-tinged nu-soul anthem, a defiant statement of intent. Mura Masa also offers an impressive synthy trip-out of a mix too.
London soul band Ephemerals made something of a splash with their debut album, Nothing Is Easy. "You Made Us Change" is taken from that superb set, and sees them laying down an end-of-night torch song full of heartfelt lyrics, evocative vocals, melancholic strings and heavy horns. The accompanying remixes do a great job in dragging the original kicking and screaming towards the dancefloor. NTSFW lay down a bouncy, UK-funky influenced house version, while the Antenna Happy Remix and Dub both sound like picturesque fusions of slow house and Balearic nu-disco. Finally, AOTA drops a chiming, sub-heavy version that sits somewhere between skittish two-step, dubstep and experimental D&B.
