Thundercat remixed. Fair Chance, fair nuff.


Back in April, as the world was spiralling into COVID-19 lockdown, Thundercat released his aptly titled album “It Is What It Is” featuring musical contributions from Flying Lotus, Childish Gambino, Kamasi Washington, Steve Lacy, Steve Arrington, BADBADNOTGOOD, Louis Cole, Zack Fox, Ty Dolla $ign and Lil B. The latter pair graced the single ‘Fair Chance’, a song that reflected a more sombre side to the album and was explicitly dedicated to the memory of Mac Miller who tragically passed away in 2018.

Earlier this summer, rappers Smino and Guapdad 4000 brought their own inimitable flavour to the anthemic ‘Dragonball Durag’ and now it’s the turn of much loved British producer Floating Points to share his take on ‘Fair Chance’, nudging the ballad onto the dancefloor with a fabulous rework that nods to vintage 4x4 UKG. The digital is out now and a 12” is available to preorder with a street date of 18 December 2020.

The remix comes during a monumental year for Thundercat. “It Is What It Is” already landed on numerous “Albums of the Year So Far” lists including Billboard, Rolling Stone, Complex, Bandcamp Daily, NPR, Paste (#15) and Stereogum (#15), Mojo and Uncut. Furthermore he has graced the covers of The Wire, Brick and London In Stereo.

‘Fair Chance (feat. Ty Dolla $ign & Lil B) [Floating Points Remix]’ is out now as a digital single. A maxi 12” single backed with ‘Fair Chance (feat. Ty Dolla $ign & Lil B)’ original, instrumental and acapella is available to preorder now and will be released on 18 December 2020.

Drift Recommends

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
