The Streets - Fit But You Know It - Video Remix
Fit But You Know It was released this week and the CD single contains two top remixes of the track. The Futureheads remix one, and Kano, Donae'o, Lady Sovereign and Tinchy Stryder the other.
The latter has its very own video featuring Mike Skinner zooming around on a Mini Scooter set on an housing estate - talking about getting a tattoo, well thinking about it anyway.
I reckon you're about an eight or a nine, maybe even nine and a half in four beers' time
Taken from the forthcoming album A Grand Don't Come For Free' the new single sees Mike grab the opportunity to rock out, creating the track's glam-rock signature riff on his mate's Fender Telecaster.
So, far from a mangled sample from the glam-rock vaults, it provides the perfect accompaniment to the hectic tale of the holiday chase, itself assisted by his good friend Stella and a fine view of that girl in the tight blue top.
With an accompanying video that captures the track's mood perfectly coming to a channel near you soon, the spirit of The Streets runs as potent as ever, with ideas as fresh as they come and sounding as unique and uplifting as those first listens to OPM proved.
