Listen to... Justin Timberlake - Suit & tie (Julio Bashmore remix)

Justin Timberlake - Suit & tie (Julio Bashmore remix) | randomjpop.blogspot.co.uk

Julio Bashmore's name was on many lips as a result of his amazing work on Jessie Ware's criticially acclaimed debut Devotion. And he's setting tongues wagging again as a result of his remix of Justin Timberlake's not-shitty-but-still-overly-underwhelming comeback single "Suit and tie". Bashmore takes Justin's Marvin Gaye-swagger-jacked-drizzle and breathes new life into it with a UK stank which treads the line between dance and funky house. It's light on the inclusion of actual vocal segments from the original, but makes wholesome use of a riff consisting of layer upon layer of Justin's ad-libs.

This is exactly what I need to hear on the radio during the Summer. It'd be great if Justin acknowledged Bashmore's remix by commissioning a music video for it and he'd get mad cool points if he actually performed a re-worked version of this at his headlining set at the London Wireless festival in July. Justin needs to toss Bashmore a follow on Twitter and let his people know about this shit, because this remix is giving me what I need and the original could never. It's like the 90's just pimp slapped my ears...AND I LOVE IT!

Be sure to play this up loud. The bass goes harder than Serena Williams' thighs.

  1. Wow, I actually really like this! I usually don't like when R&B songs get the "house" treatment, but this was extremely well done!

  2. Wow. I love this. Sound nothing like the original and that is an excellent thing.

    This is what all remixes should do, but rarely do.
