Little Dragon – “Klapp Klapp (Nosaj Thing Remix Feat. Future)”
What a fascinating, unlikely crew of musicians to have on one track. The Swedish pop group Little Dragon released the slinky, R&B-informed album Nabuma Rubberband earlier this week, and its lead single was “Klapp Klapp,” a jittery and percussive dance tune. The Californian bass producer Nosaj Thing has remixed the track, turning it into a murky twinkle, its handclaps becoming pulses in a fog. And that remix includes a new verse from Future, whose emotive robo-R&B vocals somehow mesh perfectly with everything. Even if the grouping of artists seems counterintuitive, the track itself just breezes by. Hear it below.
Nabuma Rubberband is out now on Loma Vista.
