Once upon a time Shadow Child was an electro house disciple, but this is easy to forget when listening to the deeper house productions that have put his name on the map. Adding another remix to his repertoire is a classic house spin on Mary J. Blige’s Right Now, which was originally produced by Disclosure.
Shadow Child favors a four-on-the-floor rhythm for this remix over Disclosure’s half-step tones, but the interlude midway is unmistakably Disclosure with its revolving atmospherics. Blige’s vocals remain a perfect complement with her soulful cadence and R&B swagger. The remix tapers off beautifully with the echoed syllable of Blige’s last vocal phrase.
Check back on Shadow Child’s SoundCloud for updates on the remix’s official release. Blige’s album is due out early December and it will include Disclosure’s original production along with a co-written song with Sam Smith.
