South London singer RAYE seems to be someone worth keeping an eye on. Having already impressed both Stormzy and Charli XCX, she's gone on to work with the likes of Wretch 32, MNEK and Labrinth, and her latest EP, Second, is a top-tier listen. Now, if that all sounds fantastic but sort of just outside THUMP's wheelhouse, what if we told you that one of the UK's best DJs and producers had given lead track "I, U, Us" an incredible remix? How would you feel then? Great, I imagine.

If you've been paying attention to Murlo in recent years—which you really, really should have been doing—then you'll be prepared for another treat from one of the most innovative and exciting producers around. Happily, his RAYE remix doesn't disappoint. Sitting somewhere between the never-bettered shuffle of 2-step at it's wonkiest and the contemporary clang and clank of forward-thinking club music, "I,U, Us (Murlo Remix)" is a gloriously gloopy slammer that's going to sound absolutely perfect when you hear it over the weekend whilst cradling a pair of vodka and lemonades.
