Machinedrum Remixes Jesse Boykins III & MeLo X’s “The Perfect Blues”

It’s a LuckyMe party on the Jesse Boykins III & MeLo’s latest single. Last week, we caught Jacques Greene taking on “The Perfect Blues” and today, Ninja Tune uploaded the accompanying Machinedrum and Ango remixes. Below is Machinedrum’s take, a stuttering effort that sees the Berlin-resident at his most hectic. The remix starts innocently enough, matching Boykins’ vocals with syncopated percussion and  bright, clinky synths. That is until Machinedrum’s sweeping synths and juke structure enter the picture and chaos breaks out. The fact that Machinedrum can balance hectic attempts like this with liqueur smooth tracks like “Whatnot” consistently amazes me. Stream below and grab the full single here.
