Near the end of 2017, Ekali & ZHU dropped a harmonic collaboration, “Blame,” as a free download which showcased the talents of both artists. Now, NGHTMRE has now shared an official remix of the song, taking it into a heavier direction.
This uplifting NGHTMRE rework channels the original’s clean arpeggiation and unique vocal manipulation before hopping over breaks into a light, dirty trap anthem. For the finish, it splinters into a flurry of rhythmic spears tantamount to hail and sends us off on a melodic sheen.
Ekali & ZHU’s “Blame (NGHTMRE Remix)” is out now via OWSLA/Atlantic.
