I pointed to a stream for this remix a few weeks ago, but now Jive/Zomba has been so kind to offer ArjanWrites.com readers a guilt-free MP3 of this very accomplished Kaskade remix.
The DJ/producer slightly muted the beat and added a glowing synth pump to the song's chorus that creates an entirely new melodic hook.
Recently, I spoke with Kaskade about this new Justin Timberlake remix. "If people like Justin Timberlake or Nelly Furtado come to me for a remix they like the fact that I'm a songwriter as well and they want to hear a different spin on their song," Kaskade tells Arjan for Bravo's OutZoneTV.
"The lyrics and vocals are very important to me as a starting point. If I can just hear the acapella, I can imagine the song in my head and how I would have produced it. I like to come in with a blank slate if possible."
The remix is taken from the "LoveStoned" remix EP that is out on iTunes today. The EP also includes remixes by Tiesto, Justice and Roc Mafia. Click here to download the EP on iTunes. (A big thank you to folks at Jive/Zomba or allowing me to share this with ArjanWrites.com readers.)
