There is no shortage of James Blake floating around the Indie Shuffle archives. We've featured dozens of the London artist's original tracks and remixes over the years.
So I was hesitant to share Navy's remix of Blake's 2011 tune "Measurements." For starters, I'd never heard of Navy before yesterday. Secondly, I believe it's easy for producers to piggyback on a great tune and hide their mediocre talents behind the original work.
I went back and listened to the original "Measurements" over and over, absorbing the minimalist vibes and subtle beauty. Then I looped Navy's remix, and quickly came to appreciate the dope percussion and synths layered into his rework, shifting the original track's soft nature into something a bit edgier.
