Blu J have a knack for flipping my favorite joints into outright smashes regardless of how extroverted the source material is, whether it be Imogen Heap’s “Headlock” or Deadmau5 and Kaskade’s “I Remember.” Fortunately for listeners’ yearning ears, the duo are yet again gracious enough to provide more of the same on “IN 2 U,” a glorious remix of Ariana Grande’s sultry pop gold, “Into You.”
Sitting at home listening to “IN 2 U” on repeat, I initially find myself dying to fast forward to the weekend so I can drop this joint at a function and watch sparks fly. Sure, most parties should consist of nothing more than Juvenile’s “Back That Azz Up” on repeat, but as the night wanes, potential primetime for “IN 2 U” begins. With a commanding bass-kick beneath one of Grande’s hazily edited verses, the flip slowly transitions into a chillingly melodic pre-chorus that oozes with love and lust. It’s a wonderful build-up whose rewards are plentiful, launching the track into future house goodness reserved for those aforementioned late-night dance floors.
On that note, I’m going to go catch some sleep and find myself one day closer to the weekend, a weekend where I can properly experience “IN 2 U.”
