For sure, the original tune already was a catchy piece of pop music. English/Irish singer-songwriter Maverick Sabre delivered a moody tune, filled with subtle bass chords, inspired chorus and a powerful featuring of UK singer-songwriter Jorja Smith. She gave the perfect counterbalance for Sabre's soulful vocals, turning the song into a sweet blend of vintage soul and chilled electronics.
Then, Brazilian DJ/producers Vintage Culture and Slow Motion got their hands on the track, resulting in a bootleg version that turned clubs upside down, as well as scoring millions of streams on YouTube (the upload on Mixdeck currently counts over 3,8 million views).
No wonder, the guys definitely worked their magic on this one. While still including the original melody and vocal lines of ‘Slow Down', the song is enhanced with a subtle yet powerful house groove, deep and bouncy, giving it exactly a fresh dose of energy for the club crowd.
It's the perfect team-up between what's currently happening in the UK scene and the uprising Brazilian bass sound – two worlds melting together in one irresistible dance tune!
“Maverick Sabre and Jorja Smith's vocal performances inspired us to bring our A-Game to the remix of ‘Slow Down.’ We did our very best to create a musical landscape which would simultaneously do justice to these brilliant singers, plus keep the audience moving at shows.” – Vintage Culture & Slow Motion
