South London singer-songwriter Jamie Isaac released his bluesy debut album Couch Baby in 2016. Today, he’s exclusively shared a remix of the low-key stand-out "CNT U SEE," featuring Dade County rapper Denzel Curry and Ratking's Wiki. The lush, ambient track blends piano with an off-kilter double bass, a gentle snare, a saxophone, and a smattering of handclaps that welcome Wiki into the track. While that might all sound chaotic, the effect couldn't be more chilled.
"This track was one I always wanted to lift with rappers, and I’m glad I got the two I’m most fond of at the moment,” Isaac wrote in an email to The FADER. “Wiki and Denzel both add something I couldn’t, and it’s a great way to introduce the re-release of my album for the U.S tour. I can’t thank them enough for the class they’ve added."
"Money and fame don't always equate to happiness,” Curry added. “This is for anybody that understands the real struggle of being an artist, the part most can't see.”
The official "CNT U SEE" remix is out tomorrow, February 17, and Jamie Isaac’s Couch Baby will be re-released on March 17, with more remixes from Rejjie Snow, Allan Kingdom, and Salomon Faye. Pre-order it here.
