Adult Jazz, from Leeds, and Shabazz Palaces, from Seattle, work in different genres, but their respective approaches are similar. Adult Jazz turn Talk Talk-style art-pop into whirling rhythmic playfulness, and Shabazz Palaces do the same thing with underground rap. They’re a natural pairing. And now Shabazz Palaces have taken on Adult Jazz’s single “Springful,” warping it and distending it and layering its vocals into disorienting sound effects. Adult Jazz frontman Harry Burgess says, “Shabazz Palaces had us at dancing around with giant maracas at Brudenell Social Club in Leeds in 2012. We’ve been massive fans since Black Up, so a remix from them felt really special.” Listen to that remix below.
Adult Jazz’s debut album Gist Is is out now on Spare Thought.
