“Come Thru,” one of the stand-out’s on Drake’s smash album, Nothing Was The Same, was only available on the deluxe edition but that hasn’t stopped the song’s title to become a 2013 buzz-phrase, seen on everything from Twitter hashtags to every other text message you send to your lady friends.
It seems James Blake’s a fan of “Come Thru,” as he has remixed the extra track, adding his icy synths and own backing-vocals for an almost Nintendo-like experience. It’s definitely a completely different approach, which is nice, but will be divisive to fans of the original that still have the song on constant repeat…(guilty.)
James Blake appeared at Drake’s OVO Fest, so the two are no strangers. In 2011, there was even a mash-up album of the two artists entitled James Drake that you can check out here.
Listen to the remix below, and instead of driving over Drake’s Toronoto pad, you’ll be picturing yourself cruising in a starship for some alien exploration. I think that’s a good thing? Either way, come thru.
