This week saw the triumphant return of Adam Bainbridge's funk-pop project Kindness, along with a sumptuous video for Röyksopp & Robyn's equally gorgeous electro ballad "Monument." The two songs merge on Bainbridge's reverent remix "A Monument To Everything" with a hearty new rap from South African poet Busiswa.
Her presence stems from Bainbridge's intuitions of "...the Kwaito shuffle I thought was lurking somewhere in the heart of the track." He's still the same methodical music nerd as when he first emerged, with a heightened sense of design: each new element — from gummy slap bass to brand new, ghostly sparseness — is outfitted over the original track. Everything glides effortlessly in perfect sync with the song's existing heart, beating in perfect and lovely time.
