Megan James, the Purity Ring vocalist with the uniquely confessional and childlike voice, has joined dancehall rapper Popcaan on Brooklyn producers Dre Skull’s shimmering and summery new single “First Time.” While we feel that any song featuring James’ vocals is worth a listen, Dre Skull’s synth alchemy sounds better here than it ever has and Popcaan lends even more credence to the idea that Purity Ring’s music remixed by rappers would be awesome.
