Exclusive: Chicago's finest twist an all-girl cast into bassy, fluttering new directions, feat Tinashe, Sade... and Cher
On their second album Divine Ecstacy, electronic duo Supreme Cuts contort R&B into new textures with their blend of electronic, footwork and bass, and now the duo launch a new ladies-only mix on Dazed in celebration of our Girls Rule series. It's a tracklist to dip, bop, and shuffle to, veering from new-school R&B such as Tinashe and Tink to Madonna's 1998 Eastern trip-hop deep cut "Shanti / Ashtangi" and a piched-down acapella version of Cher's "Believe". But that isn't even the oddest thing here – skip to 16:35 for mysterious Russian juke artist 6 day of August's trap take on traditional chanson. It might not make much sense, but it feels ecstatic indeed.
