Very quick post today as it's beena very busy few days. Early starts mean i haven't really been able to listen to music on my journey in but home is slightly different and I downloaded today's choice just as i was leaving the office and didn't stop listening until i got home:
Stardust – Music Sounds Better With You (Juan Laya & Jorge Montiel Re-Work)
Now i'm not going to lie, Music Sounds Better with you was a huge track for me, and for Fourbearsjr, I remember the first time we listened to it. He'd popped over with it for me to hear, we sat down and he put it on and i was completely and utterly blown away.
But the up shot of it being so huge is that the entire world got sick of it, even now i don't need to hear it, the memory of how great it was tides me over, but this re-work by Juan Laya & Jorge Montiel is utterly superb. Stripped it back using the only vocal they've built it into a slow-mo disco stomper. Little flecks of the Chaka khan sample are still there, but it's all about the re-instrumentation and the superb grooving drums.
It doesn't thump anywhere near as much as the original but it really does lock you in and mesmerise you.
plus it's free to download.
