GoldLink‘s “Fall In Love” was an undeniable jam and soundtracked the end of the summer for us here at SBHQ. And then, just when we thought we would have to part ways with the beloved track as the slight chill of autumn settled in, he gave us another reason to fall for the joint with a retro-leaning video for us to enjoy. Now Canadian producer Pomo gives us another reason to love it by giving it a remix fit for the ’80s.
He does away with the warm bass and ever-present flute flourishes, replacing them with familiar, slightly robotic synths and changing up the song’s whole groove from a bouncing hip-hop soul number to a pop/R&B almost-slow jam. While some of the song’s edge is lost, including that blistering verse from Ciscero, the song is given a bit of aloof cool that’s much more mellow. What keeps it from going all the way there, though, is GoldLink’s verse. His bouncing between singing and rapping keeps a certain energy, making Pomo’s switch-up all the more interesting.
It’s a different take on the song than we would’ve expected but somehow it just works. See what we mean by giving it a spin below.
