Nina Simone – “Don’t Let Me Be Missunderstood (Zeds Dead Remix)”

verve-remixed-zeds-dead

Now this is interesting. Verve has sorted out a Verve Ladies: The First Ladies compilation, with the likes of Flume, RAC, Bassnectar, Toro y Moi, Maya Jane Coles, Carnage, and many other producers reworking tunes from Bille Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, and the lovely Nina Simone. We recently heard Nina covering Bille Holiday over a TNGHT instrumental on Yeezus, but Zeds Dead‘s drum & bass take on “Don’t Let Me Be Missunderstood” takes things to the next level. We actually didn’t realize they went in on the dnb tip quite like this… this is pretty solid work! You can cop this remix on Beatport today, with the full compilation dropping on July 9 (pre-orders available right now).
