Following on from their well-received debut album 'Inside The Sun' and a series of one-off live performances in 2011, elusive London-based electronic/soul act Ink Project return with a brand new single and re-interpretation of 'Rapture' - the infamous Blondie classic.
Originally written and released by the American new-wave legend in January 1981 and going on to reach the number one spot in the U.S, 'Rapture' has since been covered, sampled, remixed and performed by the likes of Grandmaster Flash, The Beastie Boys, Mike Chapman, Foxy Brown, KRS-One, Erasure, Alicia Keys, Kylie Minogue, Justin Timberlake, Destiny's Child, Glamma Kid, Nicole, Elena Ferretti and The Dub Pistols amongst others.
Vocalist Melanie Dymond and producer Jez Lloyd unleash this dark and powerful electronic re-work, drawing musical comparisons with the likes of SBTRKT, Massive Attack and Leftfield amongst others.
