Hemsworth and Starlito emerge from the studio.
The latest transmission from Songs From Scratch, a series of collaborations set up by Yours Truly and Adidas Originals, is the first official collaboration between Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth and Tennessee rapper Starlito, whose 2010 mixtape Renaissance Gangster is a FACT favourite.
‘Can’t Get Over You’ pairs Hemsworth’s R’n’B influenced taste for glossy harp glissandos and bossy brass stabs with Starlito’s heavy-lidded, rasping flow, making for an unexpectedly charming gangsta love song.
While the pair were working on the song in summer, Hemsworth and Starlito shared another off-the-cuff collaboration, ‘Marley Lion (Mistakes To Make)’. Hemsworth recently released his album Guilt Trips.
The Songs From Scratch series has produced some genius team-ups this year, including Jacques Greene and Tinashe’s ‘Painted Faces’ and Chance The Rapper and Nosaj Thing’s incredible ‘Paranoia’. Watch videos of the collaborations coming together over at Yours Truly.
