Aside from recently turning heads with his drool-worthy custom Louis Vuitton x adidas NMDs, Craig David is a legendary singer, songwriter, rapper, and record producer, in case you didn’t already know. He rose to fame around the turn of the millennium, appearing on a remix of Artful Dodger’s UK garage banger “Re-Rewind” and soon after releasing his acclaimed debut album Born to Do It, featuring hit songs “Fill Me In” and “7 Days.”
Now, the R&B maestro is set to release his seventh studio album, The Time Is Now, which will drop January 26. Releasing the lead single “I Know You” featuring Bastille a few weeks back, we have the exclusive premiere of the remix by none other than DJ, MC, and producer extraordinaire Majestic.
As Craig David explains, “This remix embodies all the elements that had me fall in love with garage music the first time round. Majestic has produced an absolute banger and to hear Bastille on a Garage record is what dreams are made of!”
“Remixing can be a hard job ESPECIALLY when an original is as good as this track! But when you get the chance to put your own twist on a Craig David vocal… You know you have to take it to that real U.K. garage flava!! Also to hear Dan from Bastille’s vocal over raw bass heavy beats was so different and sounded so good!! Craig added the icing on the cake with some additional vocals giving it that real TS5 energy that he is so well known for,” said Majestic of his remix treatment.
Listen to Majestic’s remix of Craig David and Bastille’s “I Know You” above, and be sure to keep your ears peeled for The Time Is Now, which you can pre-order right here.
