'An unreleased remix dub made for XL back in 2008'
“Was looking through old hard drive files and found this unreleased remix dub I made for XL back in 2008,” SBTRKT posted alongside his heavily-altered version of Adele’s hit single.
‘Chasing Pavements’ was released in 2008 and taken from Adele’s debut album ’19’. The track won a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, as well as being nominated for ‘Song of the Year’. The album went on to sell in excess of 7 million copies.
SBTRKT’s fuzzy version, unsurprisingly, has little in common with the original, with Adele’s vocals just edging through the mix.
SBTRKT debuted three new tracks and two remixes on a Radio One Residency back in August. A series of his Radio One Residency broadcasts can also be found on Soundcloud, including additional unbroadcast material.
