Suuns have been rolling out several versions of ‘2020’ as part of their remix project, which saw them invite other musicians they admire to remix the song lifted from their 2013 album Images Du Futur. Following the first two instalments, the Montreal based quartet have just shared the third and final one, featuring re-workings from Brazilian singer-songwriter Sessa; Montréal-Beirut contemporary Arabic audio-visual duo Jerusalem In My Heart; Brooklyn-based dream-pop project Sound of Ceres; New York saxophonist, drummer, synthesizer player and composer Brahja Waldman, and footwork pioneer RP Boo. All the remixes are avilable digitally on Bandcamp on a Pay What You Can basis, with all proceeds going to the NAACP. Here´s the electrifying version of ‘2020’ reworked by Brahja Waldman.

Belgian instrumental five-piece STUFF. have been purveying their own unique sound, embracing songwriting and improvisation, and blending disparate genres like jazz, hip-hop, funk and electronica into sonically grabbing, dance-oriented tracks. Irresistibly groovy and joyous, the quintet’s second album Old Dreams, New Planets, originally released last year, received a full worldwide reissue this year through Gondwana Records.
