Song of the Day: Blood Orange “Uncle Ace (Kindness Remix ft Robert Owens)”


Blood Orange‘s Dev Hynes gets a remix and video treatment from Adam Bainbridge, aka Kindness. Bainbridge pitches down the original and recreates the classic Minneapolis sound. Bainbridge also enlists Chicago house luminary, Robert Owens to sing a duet with Hynes. The remix makes it more gritty and immediate. The video posits a few questions about how all the artists began their relationship with music. Some of the questions are answered through the video, but for the most part they are left open-ended simply because the question can apply to the viewers as well. The juxtaposition of the questions and images reminds us that where we grow up shapes and influences what we eventually become. Check out the cool and understated video by Kindness here:
