MJ Cole “Soak It Up” (Kells Remix)
Deep and swinging house.
Over the last year, East London producer Kells has become a regular fixture in XLR8R‘s download section. His offerings, both of which were remixes, came via Point Blank Recordings—the first, a remix of Amani’s “Transform,” and the second, a rework of Ann Streichmann’s “The Flow.” Both outings showed a penchant for deep and sensual house music, a style he has continued over to his latest outing, a remix of MJ Cole’s “Soak It Up.”
The remix came about after MJ Cole offered up the track’s stems back in March, giving everyone a chance to remix his work before its official release. Kells jumped at the chance and reworked the stems into a four-and-a-half minute slice of garage-infused house. With its raw swinging drums and feel-good vocals, it’s the sort of track that harks back to summer, coaxing the sunshine out with its alluring vibe.
Once again, Kells has graciously offered up the remix as today’s XLR8R download, available via WeTransfer below.
