I love it when people flip unsuspecting classics into unfiltered dancefloor weapons. Columbian sleeping giant Y4NN takes a stab at giving Timberlake a bit of Latin soul and swagger that transports the track into new and frankly scintillating terrain. The cosigns from Souelction are great and all, but this young producer appears to be blazing the trail by not overthinking the process and letting the energy do all the talking.
I’m not here to advocate covering Fleetwood Mac. Rumours remains the perfect album. It needs no improving. That said, if you’re going to revisit the turbulent act’s glory days, do so with the blissful energy and aura of Jaguar Dreams. The New York trio takes on one hell of a task, lacing ‘Dreams’ with aptly sedative melodies and a docile beat, but emerge with a respectful nod to one of Mac’s most memorable cuts from the classic 1977 LP.
New York disco/house pioneer and legendary producer/dj David Morales goes back to his disco roots and unleashes a breathtaking cover version of the late 70’s Debbie Jacob’s classic “Donâ€™t You Want My Love” which will be released via Def Mix Music on August 11th.
Recently he created an edit of the original, which has smashed has dancefloors around the globe so David decided to recreate the song from scratch under his The Face moniker. He also enlisted Nicki Richards to provide the amazing soulful vocals for this amazing scorcher.
VALENTINE recruits the seductive vocals of Sophie Meiers and the music talents of Rob Araujo to conjure up the most unbelievably dreamy rendition of Estelle x Kanye West’s classic “American Boy.” The cover is dripping in luxurious piano cords and alluring percussion.
Swedish duo Exon Banks transforms the 50 Cent hit track “Candy Shop” into hazy, subdued electronic pop that dazzles the listener.
“â€˜Candy Shopâ€™ is about asking for what you want without permission and expanding oneâ€™s perspective on femininity and gender,” they explain of the recording. “Itâ€™s about reclaiming the right to your own sexuality and transcending gender expectations. Most of all, itâ€™s about being yourself and enjoying life.”
