Listen: Blood Orange x a/jus/ted - "Uncle Ace"


a/jus/ted, a.k.a. Justin Strauss and Teddy Stewart (get it?), are producers and remixers who have been in the New York dance music game forever, but they're making a huge wave this week with a remix for the very of-the-moment songwriter Dev Hynes, better known as Blood Orange - it's their take on "Uncle Ace," the heart-rendering ode to New York's homeless LGBT kids from Hynes' 2013 record Cupid Deluxe. The a/jus/ted remix stretches out over an exhilarating nine minutes into a serpentine late-night groove, with textured vocals and a moody vibe that perfectly fits the song's oft-dark subject matter. Check it out.
