We may have an arctic blast draped across the fine city of Denver, Colorado, but as far as our ears are concerned, it’s bright, warm and sunny. Those damn snowflakes can’t bring us down. No sir. JACKLNDN is making sure of that with his delicious trop-house take on Nashville outfit ELEL’s tune “40 Watt.”

The original tune stole our hearts with it’s refined lo-fi sounds, giving us hazy vocals laid over booming percussion work which served as the backbone for the glitchy, and at times manic soundscape. Gone are the fluttering Disney-esque synths which provided that hipster whimsy that made us simply beam, and in their place are a xylophone-style melody that has us nodding our heads in approval. The two, in contrast, are very different, yet the remix brings a persona of its own, while still properly paying homage to the original.

With some expertly sampled vocals, London-based JACKLNDN has once again showed us why he gets called upon to dial up tasty house remixes of already solid tunes. Make sure to follow him on Soundcloud so you can keep up with future releases like this one.
