Pennsylvanian prodigy, pluko, has stepped up to the plate with another otherworldly output. This time, the young phenom takes on Frank Ocean with his new flip of “Godspeed.” The original track has made an astonishing resurgence in 2020, first with James Blake‘s highly requested cover and now, with pluko’s upbeat reincarnation.
The flip begins with Ocean’s heart-stopping “I will always love you” vocals slowly picking up with a soft baseline. As the groove takes flight, pluko’s classic future bass synths protrude. Finally, adding an array of rhythmic vocal chops to the beat, the flip instills the beguiling nature of the original with pluko’s classic bass and synth-driven expression.
Listen to the full track below.
