You could listen to Swedish singer/songwriter Mapei‘s debut feature right now… or you could always leave it till tomorrow. My advice? Without a question, Don’t Wait; a record this dope demands to be enjoyed without delay. This remix of the single, premiered yesterday via Pitchfork, features fresh production by Kingdom. In place of the original’s unique, gospel/world music-informed backdrop, the Los Angeles beatsmith crafts a more streamlined synth groove fueled by rhythmic handclaps and syncopated synths. He also ups the tempo significantly, imbuing the cut with added tension and urgency. This remix isn’t attached to a larger project, but its prototype is available now for purchase via iTunes.
