A music buddy of mine keyed me into this hot stuff earlier today, and it’s the perfect music to add to your light night bedroom playlist. Australia’s Nicole Millar and Zuri Akoko have teamed up for a series of incredible covers, giving a sensual electronic spin to these hits that turn them entirely on their heels. Stream Nicole & Zuri’s version of 21 Questions above, a gossamer, opulent haunter miles away from the 50 Cent original. You might recognize Nicole Millar from her guest stint on Peking Duk hit High, while Zuri Akoko offered up an intricate remix of Oscar Key Sung’s Holograms last year. Apparently, the two make a divine pairing and are obviously ones to watch. Head over to Zuri’s Soundcloud to listen to the duo’s other covers, including renditions of Shlomo’s Bo Peep and Mya’s Like Wo.

Australian artist JOY’s already wispy and beautiful Stone gets an even dreamier ambient remix by newcomer Zuri Akoko. She lines the new edit with a gentle trip hop beat and infuses it with plenty of hypnotizing, glitchy moments. I imagine this would be the perfect treat to drift away to sleep to, late in the hours of the night. There’s also an elegant opulence to the remix.
