Don’t Think It’s Love is certain to see another spike in popularity as the single has just been officially released via New State Music alongside a bevy of high-quality remixes. Notable remixers on the release include Mind Vortex, Bitrocka, Real Connoisseur, TS7, Typesun, Octo Pi, Macky Gee, and Jus Now.
The club mix of Don’t Think It’s Love is an eclectic combination of feel-good vibes and bitter-sweet themes, all stretched out over a D&B tempo. Romaine Smith supplies the somber, yet soulful lyrics on top of the tune’s funk-laden, frenetic arrangement filled with jagged bass synthetics and bubbling breaks. The EP’s remixes deliver a wide range of flavors, starting with Mind Vortex’s D&B re-tooling. Known for their up-front sound, the RAM Records’ outfit give Don’t Think It’s Love a rough and tumble re-rub, adding a surging lead-synth and chest-pummeling sub-bass capable of moving nightclub denizens clear across the dancefloor. For a deep house lesson, look no further than TS7’s bouncy remix of Don’t Think It’s Love. TS7 delivers a contemporary groove nuanced with ’90’s house music flare.
