Ibeyi | Better In Tune With The Infinite | Jay Electronica cover

Late last month, French-Cuban sisters Ibeyi played one of their very first UK live appearances with a set at Rough Trade West. The twins went behind the counter, beyond the vinyl shelves to perform a handful of songs, and their set closed with an eerie cover of ‘Better In Tune With The Infinite’ by Jay Electronica.

Now a live recording has emerged of the track being played at Residence La Revolution, all booming piano notes and inventive percussion. The original song is taken from Jay’s ‘Act II: Patents of Nobility (the Turn)’ album.

Ibeyi’s previous output has included ‘River’, ‘Oya‘ and ‘Mama Says’, with a Richard Russell-produced debut album slated for an early 2015 release on XL Recordings.

Watch Ibeyi's Cover of Jay Electronica's 'Better In Tune With The Infinite', recorded live at Residence La Revolution, July 2014.
