Listen to XO's remix of MNEK's new single "The Rhythm", exclusively on Best Fit

Teenage producer Sunil Heera - AKA XO - has remixed MNEK's new single "The Rhythm", and you can listen now, exclusively on Best Fit.

We had the world exclusive first interview with the Stoke beatsmith, and when asked about early supporteers SOHN, Cyril Hahn and MNEK, he said:

"Yeah for sure, they’re the artists I listen to on a daily basis too, so if there was any possibility of working with just one of them I’d undoubtedly take the opportunity to do so..."

So, when the opportunity did present itself, clearly Heera leapt at it with gusto. The result is a heady, twisted dancefloor-dream version of "The Rhythm". The beats are jet-fuelled, the vocals spaced-out and ethereal, the synths doused in nu-trance lacquer - it's an easy remix to shake your stuff to, but one that you can get sucked into as well.

MNEK's Small Talk EP is out 27 March on Virgin/EMI. His "The Rhythm" single is out 15 March.

Stream the remix below. The EP tracklist can be found afterwards.
