Another month, another Dom Dias remix… After blessing us with his excellent remix of “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone, the hardest working producer in Toronto returns with a tropical remix to The Jets’ 1986 classic, “Crush On You”. The track, beginning with the sounds of a rain shower, instantly brings to mind a sweltering, humid, and sticky day like those we’ve been having in the city lately. Forty seconds in, the snarl of a tiger leads into a slowed down sample of Elizabeth Wolfgramm’s hook, layered over a hazy instrumental. The funk breakdown near the middle of the track is a reminder that even in the summer heat, there’s always time to get up and dance. Overall, it’s a fun rework of an old-time favourite, and it’s meant to be enjoyed after a few too many mojitos with your l’amour du jour. Kudos to Dom for always bringing something different and enjoyable to the table, and for allowing us to share his creations with the world.
