Strange Froots celebrate the fifth anniversary of their debut eponymous EP today with Green Apple: The RMX, a collaborative mixtape project imagining new takes on their oldest track, “Green Apple.”
This tape’s eclectic track list features five Montreal and Ottawa-based producers including Backxwash, Shem G, JUICE, Little Cashew and Jassah, as well as a remix by Strange Froots’ own Magassy Mbow. On her contribution, Mbow adds, “I went back to basics and did a classic mash-up… the fact that the [songs] were in the same key and hit similar time beats once set to the same tempo, really made it that much more meaningful.”
Green Apple: The RMX is available to stream now on Bitchfork and will be landing on all major streaming services on Friday, September 20th.
