We’ve already put a spotlight on the uncharacteristically swagger-heavy video for Cadence Weapon’s ‘Conditioning’.
Oddball chanteuse Grimes has given the track a curious overhaul. The team-up shouldn’t come as a huge surprise: Cadence Weapon’s recent ’88’ borrowed the instrumental from Grimes’ ‘Eight’ (and the pair are both Canadian, of course).
The original was a taut, head-down number; Grimes’ take is sparse and spacier. Her instrumental is more delicate than pretty much anything on Visions – a swirl of wordless vocals and bass, pockmarked with pinprick bleeps and the crack of snares.
The track is available to stream and download below. The new Cadence Weapon album, titled Hope In Dirt City, is due on May 29 on Upper Class Recordings.
