Pharrell Williams' hit song "Happy" is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon, especially with the steady flow of remixes currently surfacing that switch things up but still retain the track's magic. Here's one for the house heads courtesy of our fam Applejac who's laced us with the exclusive online world premiere of his "Happy (Applejac's Unhooked Generation Remix)," and we're in turn lacing you with a free download. This remix is one that you will welcome into your collection with open arms and dancing shoes as Applejac flips the pop/soul song into a soulful house banger complete with tribal percussion, handclaps that sound like a soul clap and a groovy tempo change.
This remix made its debut and has been making the rounds at this year's Winter Music Conference thanks to DJ Spinna who world premiered it at Ian Friday's Global Soul party earlier this week. The direct word from Spinna is that Applejac's remix "smashed," and for those in attendance "it got them from the first beat." Applejac also played this remix this week at his monthly Unhooked Generation party at Atlanta's Sound Table, which pops off every last Wednesday, and the crowd response was phenomenal. You can't beat a DJ Spinna cosign and positive responses from the public with a bat. So clear some dance floor and some hard drive space and get happy all over again.
