In April 2020, Thundercat released “It Is What It Is” featuring musical contributions from Flying Lotus, Childish Gambino, Kamasi Washington, Steve Lacy, Steve Arrington, BADBADNOTGOOD, Louis Cole, Zack Fox, Ty Dolla $ign and Lil B. The latter pair graced the single ‘Fair Chance’, a song that reflected a more sombre side to the album and was explicitly dedicated to the memory of Mac Miller who tragically passed away in 2018.
Much loved British producer Floating Points puts his spin on ‘Fair Chance’, nudging the ballad onto the dance floor with a rework that nods to vintage 4x4 UKG.
The remix comes during a monumental year for Thundercat. “It Is What It Is” already landed on “Albums of the Year So Far” lists including Billboard, Rolling Stone, Complex, Bandcamp Daily, NPR, Paste and Stereogum, Mojo and Uncut. Furthermore he has graced the covers of The Wire, Brick and London In Stereo.
