From the look of things, 2023 is shaping up to be a year of risk-taking and new beginnings for Maverick Sabre. A few days ago, he took to Instagram to tease that he’d soon be releasing a beat tape of sorts, but before that comes, he’s shared Conducta’s bumpy garage remix of “I Need”, the opening track to his 2012-released debut LP, Lonely Are The Brave.
The new remix arrives not long after Mav himself revisited the Lonely Are The Brave album in its entirety. Having reclaimed his masters, he completely re-recorded the album—subtitled Mav’s Version—along with three demos from the original sessions and three acoustic versions, subsequently releasing the new version independently via FAMM.
Conducta’s edit of “I Need” just hit streaming services and it’s also been given a grainy, handheld-cam visual by Domshotthis. Taking us through the labyrinthine tube system into the heart of London clubland, with a stop-off at the shops to pick up a couple of cans, it quite literally puts Mav right in the heart of Conducta’s home ground—not that he’s a stranger to the raving world himself, of course.
