Rarely do I listen to a remix that shocks me so thoroughly that I have to go back to the original just to get my bearings. But that is exactly what Allen French has done with his rework of Robotaki's single ‘Butterscotch'. While the original tune had a real depth to it through sound production and strong lyricism, Allen French has incorporated classic guitar elements that will melt your soul. This is the reason why I chose to write about dance music, it just does not get better than innovation like that heard in this song.
Robotaki – ‘Butterscotch' (Allen French Remix)
While many artists have incorporated live instrumentation into their productions over the past many years, not many can flawlessly merge the worlds of past and present. That is exactly what Allen French captures in his remix. He has taken a more or less hip-hop and blues oriented track and flipped it into a Spanish ballad. I literally cannot believe that I am listening to the same vocals when hearing the remix.
This is true musical talent right here folks. While I am not ashamed to admit I have not heard of Allen French before this remix, you best believe I am following him on all socials and streaming services now. Check out the remix below.
