Pell‘s “Runaway” remains one of the strongest songs from last year’s Floating While Dreaming, the emotional centerpiece of the project, built on bittersweet nostalgia. A new remix sees the rapper subtly reworking the original, exhibiting how much he’s improved as a rapper and a singer since the sessions that led to Floating.

Enlisting the help of White Sea’s Morgan Kibby (a frequent M83 collaborator) and using a retouched beat that builds to a satisfying climax, Pell turns in a true remix that recalls the original and stands on its own. A worthy companion piece and addition to the young rapper’s catalog.
