G-Side – I’m Sorry (Jake One Remix)

Share Button


 
I’m slightly torn here.
 
On the one hand, Jake One’s beat is very good. The drums are heavy, and much like on Bossman’s original version the vocal harmony is used as a musical instrument to great effect.
 
But on the other hand, there’s a certain mis-match in vibe. The heavy drums ground the song, give it a an immediacy that’s just slightly at odds with the starry-eyed lyrics and the astral feel that permeates both the album version and much of the rest of G-Side oeuvre. Simply put, this isn’t spacey enough.
 
Granted, this is supposed to be a re-interpretation and not a re-tread, so in that light the remix unquestionably succeeds. Maybe I’m just too attached to the original to accept Jake One’s version on it own terms.
