Homeboy D-Why is back with more rap songs. This time he takes a spin on a remix of Flight Facilities‘ “Crave You” by Friendly Fires. Not quite sure if this is a cut from his upcoming tape, Don’t Flatter Yourself, but one things for sure: each of his tracks have been sonically unique. Is D-Why uber-eclectic or still searching for his own sound? I’ll let you decide.
I don’t know Sampha, but I know he’s probably an amazing human being. He probably donates so much money to charity yet still manages his money so meticulously. He probably invented snow. Sampha is perfect. His voice was hand-crafted by angel harps, and he can almost definitely play table tennis with his eyes closed. Amazing.
Honestly, I think he should be the permanent vocalist for SBTRKT. Each of their collaborations has been exceptional, and this one is, well, no exception. The cover is more soulful and subdued than the original (compare here). It features Sampha’s signature angel harp vocals. I really don’t want to stop talking about Sampha! He can make babies sing instead of cry.
The cover was performed live on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, but really, you won’t be able to tell. Jesus was Sampha’s vocal coach.
WAIT! This is only the beginning of the SBTRKT and Friendly Fires news. As SBTRKT told Australia’s triple j, the two got a collaboration on his next album with vocals from Friendly Fires lead singer Ed Macfarlane. SBTRKT also hinted at another collaboration with Drake. So swag on that.
“As I hear your voice, it sets my heart on fire.” -Me to Sampha everyday/Sampha in this song
