Jack U power-duo Diplo and Skrillex are following up their first hit single Take U There with an EP of seven new remixes including versions from Tchami, Netsky, and Vindata.
Each remixer on the EP takes Kiesza’s voice in creative directions but retains the energetic feeling of the original.
All eyes are on Tchami’s remix after the news surrounding his involvement in the co-production of DJ Snake’s hit single Turn Down For What hit the internet this week. The remix ‘turns down’ the island influences of Jack Ü’s original for a moody rendition brimming with a sinister subbass growl and pitched down vocals.
Netsky plays on the island influence at the beginning of his interpretation and leaves in the steel drums, which is a perfect complement to the percussive broken beats of their D&B style. But it is Vindata’s laidback remix that really drives home the reggae direction of the original with a swaying off-kilter rhythm.
You can purchase the remix EP which includes remixes from Zeds Dead, Felix Cartal, TJR and Tujamo on Beatport.
