Along with BBQs and bikinis, one of the great things about summer are the uptempo dance remixes to our favorite songs. They keep the party going well into the late summer months when the last thing we want to think about is cold weather and cuffing season. The latest jam from Britain-born singer JONES is a welcome addition. The Bounce-Worthy artist has teamed up with East London producer Jay Prince to remix her atmospheric track, “Melt.” And, like any good combination, the final product is greater than the sum of its parts.
Jay Prince’s refix of “Melt” transforms the contemplative mid-tempo song into a bonafide uptempo dance number. The groove itself is enough to get any party started right. However, it’s the dramatic chorus that brings the song to a climax of unexpected proportions. A bombastic mix of merengue sounds including conga drums and jubilant horns play splendidly along with the rough and tumble bass line. Despite the cacophony of pots and pans, the intent of the song isn’t lost, finding new life and energy in the celebration of finding love.
With the “Melt” remix, JONES and Jay Prince have created a magical piece of music fit for your endless summer days and nights. Hit play and get into the groove.
