This latest tune from the dubstep wunderkind from LA is a spin on one of Nina Simone’s classics. For now, do try to resist crying: “Burn the heretic”…
Having made waves across the pond in the realm of glitch, MiM0SA is poised to release his follow up to the Your Love EP, and today we bring you an example of his sound. It’s a brave endeavour if ever we heard one.
The last time we heard a reworking of I Put A Spell On You it was courtesy of the former S’Express singer Sonique, a faux-string laden pop single that featured on a Capital Radio advert. Ten years later MiM0SA remakes it for the kids who dubstep.
He layers metallic beats and fluttery synth over Simone’s awesome vocal, and even though at times it sounds a little awkward, when the bass kicks in, and the vocals are more of an accompaniment than a main element, it comes into its own.
Unfortunately it all ends very prematurely.
It really is far, far too short. At a mere two minutes and 17 seconds it feels like an interlude to something else, though what is there is good, and with MiM0SA’s clean, tight production that went down so well on last year’s Flux For Life, that something else is something to look forward to.
MiM0SA’s mini-LP Silver Lining drops on the 4th October.
