I’ve been kind of making it a personal point to not seek out any remixes of Frank Ocean’s latest albums, because you can’t mess with perfection. I’m kidding, but all jokes hold some truth. Honestly, I really haven’t really come across any Endless or Blond(e) remixes. That is until I heard the work of Russian based producer, dontleaveme.
A friend had me listen to dontleaveme’s bootleg of White Ferrari, and I was immediately grabbed by the late night drone of the production. There was something so comforting about the distorted production slowly tip-toeing over Frank’s distant vocals. And the looming presence of the song’s final verse “I’m sure we’re taller in another dimension. You say we’re smaller and not worth the mention…” looping throughout the remix is really the ethereal cherry on top of everything great about this aural treat.
