Track Of The Day 26/10 – Dua Lipa

'Blow Your Mind (Mwah)' (NK-OK x Blue Lab Beats Remix)

There's something about watching an emerging artist uncover the extent of their own talent that truly excites.

This time last year, Dua Lipa was almost unknown – fast forward 12 months and she's sold out London's KOKO venue, and has finished work on a red hot debut album.

The LP drops early next year, with new single 'Blow Your Mind (Mwah)' underlining her seductive grasp of the light/dark dichotomy.

Fun, frisky pop music with a real sense of edge, the release has been re-worked by rising London production duo Blue Lab Beats.

The pairing – NK-OK and MR D.M. – share a mutual love of jazz, pared down hip-hop, G-funk and more, and this pot pourri is sprinkled liberally over Dua's infectious original.

It's a neat rendering – Blue Lab Beats sluice all manner of vivid colours through the production, but it feels entirely natural, more like a full collaboration than a remix.

Tune in below.

Dua Lipa's debut album is slated to be released on February 10th.
