Today, avant-garde supreme Perfume Genius gave us a second taste of his upcoming EP Reshaped, a six-track collection of remixes that serve as a follow-up to his groundbreaking 2017 album No Shape. Last week, the artist dropped King Princess's remix of "Run Me Through", and today, Mura Masa gave us an electric remix of the romantic track "Slip Away".

Imprinting his signature dance groove onto the epic dreamscape, the DJ-producer infuses the compelling melody with a building bass that eventually escalates to an earned bop moment, and then delicately digresses in a satisfying wind down. The success of this "Slip Away" remix is found in Mura Masa's ability to fuel the anthemic heart of the original composition, infectiously elevating the five-minute journey with his own dance-y touch.

The remainder of the remix EP, set to launch on June 8, will feature Laurel Halo, Jam City, Blake Mills, and mmph. While we wait for more genius from Perfume Genius, take a listen to Mura Masa's major remix below.
