PREMIERE: Morcheeba – Make Believer (Psychemagik Remix) [PIAS]
Morcheeba - Make Believer (Psychemagik Remix) [PIAS]

British trip hop mainstays Morcheeba announced the impending release of their newest single Make Believer this week, and LessThan3 has the exclusive premiere of Psychemagik’s (pictured) hypnotic remix.

Morcheeba’s storied legacy in the dance music world would be enough to dissuade most producers from attempting to remix the group, but UK duo Psychemagik are not most producers (their first vinyl release was a clever edit of Fleetwood Mac, another classic “untouchable” group). Their rendition of Make Believer defies simple genre classification by swapping out the dub elements of the original beat and incorporating signifiers from across the house music spectrum for a tune that’s anything but formulaic. Morcheeba singer Skye delivers sublime vocal melodies with alarming consistency, and the Psychemagik boys are smart not to alter too much about her contribution.

Morcheeba’s Make Believer single is out Aug. 18 via PIAS. The group’s most recent full-length, 2013’s Head Up High, is available on iTunes.
