Massive Attack Reinterprets “The Don”
The Bristol band surprises by remixing Nas
Massive Attack neither confirm nor deny that they are preparing material for a new album. Nevertheless, this remix of Nas’ “The Don” confirms that they spent some time in the studio a few months ago, as those photos that they posted on their Facebook page show. At least Robert del Naja and Tim Goldsworthy did, to give another twist of the screw to the first official single from “ Life Is Good”. The result takes advantage of that vocal sample with the Jamaican air that is so effective, which is added to instrumentation, completely changing the temperament of the original to something much more taciturn. It’s very enjoyable; we hope that a new album from the champions of trip-hop is on the horizon.
