Q-Tip Joins Hiatus Kaiyote on ‘Nakamarra’ Remix
Hiatus Kaiyote is one of Australia’s best new musical exports (after Tame Impala and Flumes, of course). Although describing their sound as “Future Soul,” the four-piece Melbourne outfit have already weaved their way into the hip-hop community off the strength of co-signs from the likes of Mac Miller and Chance the Rapper.
Even better, Hiatus Kaiyote have also got the nod from the legendary Q-Tip, who makes the cypher complete on their new ‘Nakamarra’ remix. The track, in its original incarnation, is an accomplished, soul-steeped composition, which means The Abstract’s short, but sweet, guest verse slides right in.
Having recently inked a deal with Sony Masterworks imprint Flying Buddah, Hiatus Kaiyote are gearing up to properly release their acclaimed 2012 LP, ‘Tawk Tomahawk,’ on July 16. Soon after on July 25 their U.S. tour gets underway, which includes a few dates with Erykah Badu and D’Angelo.
