Haze's producer The 83rd splices her track with The xx man's anthem

Brooklyn-based producer The 83rd has just released his mash-up of ascendant New York MC Angel Haze's recent cut 'New York' with Jamie xx's 'NY Is Killing Me', from last year's album with Gil Scott-Heron We're New Here - have a listen to the appropriately-titled 'New York' below:

While 'NY Is Killing Me' has been seemingly remixed/spliced every which way possible, The 83rd's matching of Haze's sucker-punch vocal turn with the keyboard hook maximises its potency, leaving something that will, no doubt - and deservedly so - become massive.

Haze herself is one to watch. Having relocated to New York from her native Michigan, where she grew up in the Greater Apostolic Faith, which she describes as a "cult", the 21 year-old's caused ripples with her recent EP, 'Reservation' (produced by The 83rd), which you can download here.

She's playing the Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen in London on October 8, and ahead of that, have a watch of the video for 'New York' below:
