There’s a fine line when remixing Mayer Hawthorne. Because the original versions of his throwback songs are so unique to our time period already, putting a current spin on them kind of defeats the purpose. Yet, when the producers handling said redecorating are talented enough to keep his organic nature in line, the results can still be extraordinary.
For Mayer’s latest remix freebie, the A2 singer enlists quality over quantity and provides five revised tracks from his big studio debut How Do You Do, including producers like Bakaboyz, Sugar Rod and our favorite in-house funkateer DaM-FunK. His completely-tricked out remix of the already epic “Can’t Stop” with Uncle Snoop could be better than the OG version – which is saying a lot.
