Adele is hot right now. If you know anything about pop music, you probably have heard that her new album, 25, is drawing praise from far and wide. The recent Adele-craze may explain why electronic pioneer SBTRKT decided to drop a surprise unreleased remix of her 2008 hit, “Chasing Pavements.”
SBTRKT’s remix of the Adele classic is an ominous take on the singer’s powerful track. The song starts with Adele’s original words, but SBTRKT soon brings in some darker vibes. His glitchy version includes a mild yet eerie beat and toned-down vocals. In other words, it’s a typical 2008 SBTRKT song. It may leave you nostalgic for old-school SBTRKT- or, at least, wondering what direction the he’s heading in these days.
