Listen: Crescent remixes Kanye West’s ‘Mercy’

IRL-EP_sqr-cover-webstore1

Didn’t think an opportunity to cover Kanye West on Crawlspace would ever present itself, but here we are: Melbourne producer Leon Crescent has remixed West’s ‘Mercy’ for his forthcoming IRL cassette, which is due to release through This Thing on April 16. There’s some pretty obvious juke influences here, but I’m not certain how far they extend beyond this initial remix, because the other three tracks on IRL are still shrouded in mystery.

According to whoever wrote up Crescent’s press release, this producer’s style is exemplary of a more stream-of-consciousness strand of footwork called ‘housework’, a mutant strain which I know nothing about and is impossible to Google. Have a listen and call it what you want.
