Mr Mitch
'Kora Sings' is given a beautifully frosted treatment...

Mr Mitch has shared his new remix of Sampha's beautiful 'Kora Sings'.

Sampha released his debut album 'Process' earlier in the year, winning the Barclaycard Mercury Prize in emotional circumstances.

Mr Mitch has had a big 2017, too, with his album 'Devout' fusing fresh ideas with his adventurous take on instrumental grime without limits.

Teasing a potential Sampha remix, the producer has now shared his take on 'Process' cut 'Kora Sings' and it's a doozy.

Opening in pared down, sparse territory, the emptiness of the sound seems to find fresh atmosphere within Sampha's knockout delivery.

Gently building the arrangement, Mr Mitch adds a frosted take on left field house to 'Kora Sings', a wonderful pairing that opens out new meaning on the song.

At times Sampha's lyric seems submerged in self-doubt, before the producer cuts back to let the vocal pirouette out of the electronic depths.

It's an entrancing re-work, one we've been playing a lot of late. Tune in below.
