Jim-E Stack – “Deadstream [Rostam Version]” (Feat. Charli XCX)

Here’s something exciting from electronic producer Jim-E Stack: a new version of his recent single “Deadstream” remixed by Rostam Batmanglij and featuring vocals by both Rostam and Charli XCX. The original track’s popping rhythm section amd misty-lens atmospherics remain, but they’ve been mutated and dissected into something in the mold of Rostam’s own stunning single “Gravity Don’t Pull Me.” In my opinion this drowsy romantic lament is a much more effective way for the increasingly pop-minded Charli to indulge her experimental side than her work with the PC Music crew.
