Maybe he has love on his mind — or lust, but GoldLink has been dropping music lately geared towards women, whether it be in the love sense or the sexual one. His take on Kelela’s “Rewind” is right in tune with his prior tracks. It’s warm and bouncy with little hints of garage and old school swing. The record, which premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC 1 show also got an immediate cosign from Kelea herself.
“It’s everything I wanted,” she told Annie Mac on a call from Sydney. “He’s so smart. The remix is so smart. It’s one of the smartest ones that I’ve heard in a long time. And it’s such a beautiful nod to the old school remix, which was a true rework, where you know all the parts but feel like they’re being placed in a different context… Also, his nod back to garage. It’s almost like he was speaking directly to me.”
