Throwback Slow Back
As Justin is ripping up the charts with his 20/20 Experience, I figured you and I could revisit one of his old hits, My Love.
Justin Timberlake – Let Me Talk To You/My Love (Medley)
Starting at the 1:30, it’s an old gem dating back to 2006. It climbed the US Billboard charts all the way to #1 and cemented the FutureSex/LoveSounds album.
There have been many remixes but this one by Bear Face stands out.
Justin Timberlake – My Love (Bear Face Remix)
I’ve never been a fan of slow downed vocals (and I don’t know of anyone that would be). They typically sound horrible and just down right sh!t.
Bear Face managed to pull some sort of wizardry to get this one to work. Maybe it wasn’t too hard for him considering that’s his style but for someone who doesn’t listen to this type of stuff – it’s so…cool.
Now, I know this isn’t the usual fare for remixes but I am giving credit where it’s due. This track could have turned into garbage for the ears but with the slow down, Bear Face was experience enough to massage the instrumentals to deliver a unique listening experience. It has that laid back trance type of feel perfect the listen before bed.
What are you thoughts? Your cup of tea or would you rather have it go down the drain?
