Kanye West created a special Soul II Soul mix for Kate Moss’ “Desert Island Discs”

Kate Moss presented a special track mixed by Kanye West during her recent appearance on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Records.

When asked by presenter Lauren Laverne what his desert island tracks would be, one of the choices was a track West had specially mixed for Moss. The pair have been friends for many years, and West referenced Moss on his 2007 track, “Stronger.”

The version shared by Moss is “Back to Life” by West’s Sunday Service and Jazzie B.

“I got this mix especially for today,” Moss said on the show. “I heard Kanye’s Sunday Service version and was blown away” (via MixMag).

The track features vocals from Kanye’s choir mixed with Jazzie B’s original Soul II Soul.

Moss said the original version of the song “takes her back” to her youth and she remembers playing it with her friends. “We’d blast it down the high street in Croydon and think we were the coolest people!”

Other tracks played by Moss include The Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil” and David Bowie’s “Life on Mars.”

Last week, West appeared at the Rolling Loud festival on Friday (July 22) after canceling his main spot less than a week earlier.

Kid Cudi replaced Kanye West on the bill at the Miami event when West, who is now officially known as “Ye,” “decided he [would] will no longer be effective”. This was the ‘DONDA’ star’s second festival cancellation in 2022, following Coachella.

Despite this, West showed up to the event to join Lil Durk for their recent Cardi B collab “Hot Shit.” They also performed ‘Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1.’

Meanwhile, Kid Cudi, who replaced West for his title spot, left during his title set at Rolling Loud after members of the crowd repeatedly threw objects onto the stage.
