Stream: Grimes f. Deniro Farrar, “Genesis” (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)

Grimes is a fantastic electro-pop artist from Montreal, although you won't find her making chart-topping dance tracks with Guetta or Stargate.  You're more likely to find her child-like voice floating over soaring New Wave synth lines and harsh robotic drums, the juxtaposed sounds evoking a spare, futuristic soundscape.

Here though, the sparseness is replaced by a the lush instrumentals of Ryan Hemsworth and his frequent collaborator Deniro Farrar, a North Carolina rapper.  

The result is a dense ornamental piece, pierced through by the project-laden poetry and smoked-out vocals of Farrar.  Grime's vocals are layered off in the background, giving the song airy, angelic hope alongside Farrar's depressingly accurate lyrics.
