Jamie Lidell Gives Us A Funky Remix Of Nick Hakim’s ‘Cuffed’

British artist Jamie Lidell got a hold of Nick Hakim‘s “Cuffed” and received permission from Nick himself to give it a remix, and he delivers a funky alternate take. Taken from Nick Hakim’s debut album Green Twins, the original track has a mellow vibe while the remix gets additional layers of future funk, soul and jazz. Jamie also adds guitarist Marcus Machado into the mix and he brings some impeccable string work to the proceedings. Paired with Nick’s haunting and soulful vocals, it’s a worthwhile twist we didn’t even anticipate.

So far, Nick has released just three tracks from his album, including the title track, “Bet She Looks Like You” and one of the album’s standouts “Roller Skates.” To keep himself even busier, he’s gearing up for the fall where he’ll hit the European leg of his tour. With October stops down South and on the West Coast, Nick later takes it to the Netherlands, the UK, Germany and France in November.
