Brian Eno, the electronic music pioneer and former member of Roxy Music has once again reignited his collaboration with rapper Headie One and producer Fred again.. by remixing their song ‘Told’.
The London rapper and producer recently released GANG mixtape to critical acclaim and now Eno has got in on the act by providing a dreamy remix of the mixtape’s opening song.
Eno gives Headie One and Fred again..’s song a drifting new tone which allows the track to really pop. It’s the third time Eno and Fred again.. have worked on each other’s songs.
Fred again.. was a student of Eno’s and has been attending London sessions with the pioneering musician since he was 16. The producer also worked with Eno on both of his 2014 albums Karl Hyde, Someday World and High Life.
GANG was Headie One’s follow-up to 2019’s Music X Road and finds the rapper in rare form, looking to level up and confirm his place at the top of the pile. The mixtape also included guest contributions form FKA Twigs, Sampha and Jamie xx.
