"Dontcha Care", fusing arpeggiated synths over a dynamic bass line, fades in slowly but quickly finds its natural stride. Jeromy keeps the pace moving forward interweaving warm chords, vocal samples, and melodic elements which culminate in a contrast of driving rhythms against fading summer vibes. For good measure, and to help sate the vocal adverse, an instrumental mix is also supplied.
Hanssen (of Jacob London fame, and hot off the heels of acclaimed sophomore full-length Transit on Hush Hush Records) delivers a slower, pitched-down version. A deep, textured four-on-the-floor groove builds over 8 minutes. With its superb production value, spacious atmospherics and Hanssen's signature left-field stylings, this remix is sure to please.
Next up is Liberian born artist / producer Sam Paye. Cutting his teeth in the 2000's U.S. breakbeat and progressive scene, Sam toured extensively to support releases on Moonshine and System Recordings. More recently focusing on a mélange of hip-hop, dancehall and electronic soul, Sam turns over a stellar mix which captures the flavor of the original reimagined as a trap-inspired, bass-infused club banger.
Rounding things out with an intricately dubbed-out, tech-house flavored rendition is Portland's Jon Cates. Known for his work on Om Records as Rocket Empire and Cates & dPL, Jon effortlessly blends snappy, syncopated drums, light percussion, vocal stabs, and melodic synth elements to take us on a smooth, hypnotic ride deep into the twilight hours.
