Beat-smith supreme James Blake has just applied the remix treatment to Destiny Child's "Bills, Bills, Bills" released in 1999. It basically the prequel to DC's year 2K anthem "Independent Women". Question...? How do you think it turns out? We'll luckily our homie Sam Benati over at LessThan3 is pretty well versed on the original to tell it to us straight (propers to Sam for admitting his guilty pleasure).

Here's what he said:
Thankfully there are producers like James Blake out there legitimizing my guilty childhood pleasures by updating them for modern, forward-thinking audiences. This morning, Blake uploaded Bills (attributed to his Harmonimix alter ego) to his 1-800 Dinosaur SoundCloud page with little fanfare, preferring instead to let the tune speak for itself. It's a strangely catchy, warped reworking of Destiny's Child's Bills, Bills, Bills, rounded out with Blake's trademark loungey synth sounds and skittering percussion.
