Prince Innocence f/ Deniro Farrar – “Girls” (Remix) | New Music

North Carolina’s Deniro Farrar has found his way into placements and premieres on sites such as The FADER, Prefix and SPIN, but he’s merely tip-toed his way into these regarded co-signs. You won’t hear his name surface in conversations about Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown or other fellow future runners of rap music, but you can bet he’ll be gathering at the same finish line when the time comes.

The emcee’s catalogue is only in its infancy – his Destiny Altered mixtape serving as the single flagship release – yet his sound is as striking as the distinct angle of the music itself. Picture the middle ground between the ambient audio of indie pop outfit The xx and the menacing trap tales of B.G. – the sedated slur in tact – and you’ll see Deniro occupying turf.

Having previously dipped left (far left for any Southern rapper) and remixed Canadian “dream pop” singer-songwriter Grimes‘ “Genesis” number (gaining acclaim from the artist herself), Deniro now employs synth duo Prince Innocence‘s “Girls” to fill the vacancy for his next experimental rap remix effort. And once again, the emcee opens minds, refreshes tastes and flips frowns 180. Prefix even called it better than Cults/Freddie Gibbs‘ otherworldy effort.

Do stream below and as the sounds seep into your senses, I’ll let you know that Deniro Farrar is prepping a collaborative EP with Chicagon production duo Flosstradamus, with the first cut being premiered on the UK’s own BBC Radio 1 on April 21st. I had the privilege of getting an early listen and I assure you it’s another winner.
