A Heavy bass line and big drops give this track a more modern age feel and vibe than the rest of the remixes on the release. However, not every remix on the EP is built to blow eardrums and rock clubs. Brooklyn based house DJ Son of Sound jumps on the track and twists the melodies into a 80’s melodic dance masterpiece, perfecting the use vocal samples and old school synthesizers.
