Love’s got a sh*tload to do with it when it comes to pulling off a such a great remix of a song. It’s Zimmer’s ability to stay true to the original while injecting the right dose of echoed claps, deep bassline and that flute-like sound reminiscent of Met At Work’s famous Down Under that make up this accurately labeled rendition as a ‘rework’ rather than a ‘remix’.
I was only a year old when this song came out but it’s inevitable to have multiple memories of specific moments when this song played on the radio or on a cassette player. I find it really odd that it was only this year that this song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame or any Hall of Fame for that matter. A fun fact about this track is that Donna Summer sat on this composition for a couple of years and never recorded it.
Zimmer hails from Paris, France and his Soundcloud bio states that his music is a “feel good, body-warming and enthusiastic wave that goes straight to the heart and stays until the end of the night” which I couldn’t find a more apt description of his work.
Enjoy this fresh throwback best served in a tropical environment or mood.
