DJ Kon gives The Gap Band his special “remix” treatment (audio)


When ever DJ/crate digger/producer Kon gets his hands on a classic track and works his magic with it, it’s always hard to tell if you can call it just simply an edit or if it’s technically a remix. But when the final product is this damn good, it’s hard to care. Kon takes on one of my favorite late tracks on The Gap Band’s I album, adds some beautiful disco bounce to it, and overall just gives a less disjointed feel to it (which to be fair, was always one of my favorite aspects of that) to keep the dance going. Definitely a great choice for a re-work or whatever you want to call it.

Bonus: Here’s the original, just in case you’ve never heard it. Or if you have no idea what an edit is.
