Little Dragon Make A Mix, Cover Crystal Waters

“You guys wanna hear a club classic?” is how Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano launches into a cover of “Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless).” The track is in fact a club classic, inescapable over the past 21 years, and it’s fitting hearing it sung by the voice of 2011’s most inescapable club track, “Wildfire” with SBTRKT (and, for that matter, Drake). So below, you’ll get Little Dragon covering Crystal Waters’s 1990 classic and, as bonus, an MP3 of the Drumma Boy (feat. Shabazz Palaces) remix of Little Dragon’s SBTRKT track. Seeing as Little Dragon is the nexus of this post, you can also head over to Modular for the band’s eight-track Modcast, a mixtape they made for the Aussie label that will get you further in their headspace. (Or at least, their headphones.) Click on:
