MK's Remix Of Rüfüs Du Sol's "Say A Prayer For Me" Brings Funk To Solemnity
The producer remixes the lead single from the band's new album.
The producer MK has developed a reputation for remixing: in 2014 alone, MK produced remixes for Sia, Lana Del Ray, HAIM, Angel Haze, Nile Rogers, and Sam Smith. He took 2015 off to work on a new album, but when Rüfüs Du Sol approached him about remixing their new track "Say A Prayer For Me," the DJ set aside his record to work on it. "Sometimes I just know when I have to do a record," he told FADER. "This was one of those times. The vocals are incredible."
While Rüfüs Du Sol's original "Say A Prayer" mixed a subtle beat with arresting and emotive vocal work, MK's steadies and amplifies the percussion and duplicates singer Tyrone Lindqvist's voice into a cathedral-ready chorus. Listen to remix and original below.
"Say A Prayer For Me" is the lead single off of Rüfüs Du Sol's new album Bloom.
