Loraine James shares new single and video ‘Déjà Vu’ feat. RiTchie (Injury Reserve) + world tour dates

Loraine James new single and video ‘Déjà Vu’ feat. RiTchie is taken from her upcoming album ‘Gentle Confrontation’, released on Hyperdub in September

Déjà Vu features RiTchie from Arizona rap group Injury Reserve on vocals. A mutual admiration brought them together to collaborate. Over crunchy beats and a gentle piano melody, with a sing-song rap, RiTchie works through a clash of anger, trying to break down what happened and make amends.

It’s an instance of ‘Gentle Confrontation’. The video by Parker RiTchie’s partner in Injury Reserve, shows RiTchie gliding in the back of a car in a single shot that complements the contemplative feel of the music perfectly.
