Under the moniker Harmonimix, James Blake has been flipping select hip-hop songs to create imaginative—and often eerie—remixes. The most recent offering from the Harmonimix vault is a rework of Gorillaz’s most beloved song, the De La Soul-assisted “Feel Good Inc.”
Unearthed by Rich Reason, who recently released a FABRICLIVE mix that included the song, Blake’s skeletal remix is a little less feel good than the original in the sense that the lurking, atmospheric electronic elements create a mood more menacing. As per all James Blake remixes, though, it’s menacing in the best way, of course. According to Rich Reason, this one is “from back in the day,” though it seems like that’s all we’re getting about the track.
