Hear Toronto's Freeza Chin Remix Frank Ocean's "We All Try"
It arrives in celebration of an Ocean anniversary milestone
Published Feb 16, 2021Today marks the 10th anniversary of Frank Ocean's 2011 debut mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra, and Freeza Chin has shared a remix of the project's "We All Try" to mark the occasion.
To mark the tape's milestone, the Toronto producer/engineer pares back Ocean's Los Angeles-inspired instrumental to dress up "We All Try" with sparse, shifty percussion and minimal synths — sounds much more in tune with his city's current wintry surroundings.
You can find Freeza Chin's "We All Try" remix and its accompanying instrumental below.
In a 2011 review of Nostalgia, Ultra, Exclaim! called the mixtape "desolate, thumping and sophisticated."
Last December, Freeza Chin teamed with Tre Mission to collaboratively produce an EP for grime icon Flowdan, which saw release through the former's Toronto-based Bare Selection imprint.
That same month also saw Ocean scrap a planned vinyl 7-inch release, which would have featured new music.
