Lemonade – “Remain In Jah (Chrissy Murderbot Juke RMX)” (Stereogum Premiere)

One of this year’s finer short-players came from Lemonade and their EP Pure Moods, and over its construction (and now its remix reconstruction), the trio’s shown a knack for tapping tasteful sounds, spirited remixers. The single “Lifted” has been re-upped here twice, expansively in the hands of Twin Shadow and later via the blissful, woozy champagne swagger of Fischerspooner man Michael Cheever (as Le Chev). Today it’s “Remain In Jah,” maniuplated by DJ/producer/label head/Chicago juke proponent Chrissy Murderbot. The fairly spare track makes a fine foil for a juke take: the BPM’s jacked in the vein of this ghetto house offshoot making for some quickened, anxious steel drums over intricately patterned beats, softened by the occasional rush of lush windchimes and some stretched play on Callan’s vocals. It’s great and sat on the opposite end of Le Chev on the spectrum, which you should use as a chaser if this gets you too juked up.
