It's hard to believe Frank Ocean dropped his long-awaited third album, Blonde, more than a month ago. The one-of-a-kind project–featuring a who's who of collaborators including James Blake, Rostam Batmanglij, and Jamie xx–dominated conversation among music fans for weeks before and after its release.
Now, Okayplayer reports Blonde has received the unofficial remix treatment. Kweku Saunderson, the nephew of Detroit legend Kevin Saunderson, has turned Blonde into Brunette, a house and techno-heavy tribute to Ocean's new album. Saunderson even created two different stylizations of Brunette (just like Ocean with Blonde and blond).
The 8-track, dance-floor ready Brunette features remixes of the tracks "Good Guy," 'Siegfried," "Nikes," "Skyline To," "God Speed," "Solo," and "White Ferrari." Some of the tracks, like "Good Guy," sound nearly unrecognizable, but that shouldn't stop fans from listening.
