MeLo-X Is ‘Rolling’ With Adele & Jamie xx

The word remix quite often fills me with dread. Most of the time they add nothing to the original versions. In fact, a lot of the time they detract from it, resulting in an almost unbearable listening experience. My side-eye was wide open when I heard that Jamie xx had remixed Adele's "Rolling In The Deep." Don't get me wrong Jamie is a very talented guy, but I just couldn't imagine that his style would complement Adele's blues and gospel infused stomper. Well, I'm happy to admit I was 110% wrong, so when this remix of that remix cropped up I was intrigued rather than cautious. MeLo-X has taken the Jamie xx mix and added some adlibs as well as his own verses, giving an opposing viewpoint to Adele's and taking the track straight to the clubs in the process. Is this a hit, miss, or maybe? Let us know what you think.
