Words by Natalie Weiner—
It’s hard to resist a Gyptian track – you know it, we know it, probably even your mom knows it (maybe don’t think about that one too hard). That’s why we’ve linked with Brooklyn label Dutty Artz to give you (yes, for free) a sick “Wine Slow” remix from beatmaker Kush Arora. In these “China White” remixes, Kush takes dancehall tunes like the simmering “Wine Slow” (see also his collaboration with Mega Banton, “Shake Sitten“) and turns them into mellow, heavily electronic nu-disco jams. This one, with its lush synths and fragmented vocals, takes Gyptian from the beach to the rave.
The track is part of a four-track EP called Dutty Conquerors, one of a series of EPs Dutty Artz is releasing to commemorate its six-year anniversary. Each EP has a different geographical theme, since the label has artists and DJs that specialize in music from all over the world (if you live in New York, you’ve probably come across their epic Que Bajo parties at some point).
