We all know that remixing a classic is dangerous business, but taking on one that has already been reworked by the likes of Pretty Lights? Now that’s plain insanity. However, with great risk comes great reward, and bass producer Psymbionic delivers a seriously funky glitched out edit of the 70’s jam with huge success. Layered with infectious organ samples and guitar riffs, the winning combination of classic instruments with modern electronic sounds ensures that this effort won’t just live in the shadows of the more renowned mix. In fact, it even holds some advantages over it. For one, it’s fully released, secondly it’s a free download, and more importantly, Psymbionic uses the uplifting vocals from the iconic chorus that were never included in the Pretty Lights version, which always seemed like a massive tease. Thankfully, this track makes the whole experience feel complete and the original has certainly been done justice. 90’s kids, now is the appropriate time to listen to those pangs of nostalgia and hunt down that copy of Space Jam on VHS buried in the cupboard somewhere. I know I will.
