How To Dress Well + TĀLĀ: The One
on 28 January 2015
The Songs from Scratch series by Adidas Originals and Yours Truly inspires on-the-fly creativity from musicians. The latest installment sees Chicago native (and CH favorite) Tom Krell aka How To Dress Well paired up with eclectic UK garage-electro artist TĀLĀ. Keeping in step with the series, "The One" was produced in just 24 hours. Krell and TĀLĀ each dropped their own versions of the track drawing on a few overlapping vocal and instrument samples. The influence of the opposing artist is felt in each, but the value lies in the comparing each track in light of the artists' previous offerings. Krell's version is imparted with a dose of London grime while TĀLĀ appeals to—however subtly—the human side of electronica.
