Following on from that Joy O remix of Donnell Jones’ smoother-than-smooth ‘U Know What’s Up’, here’s another perfumed bit of 1990s nostalgia.
Teenaged production duo Bondax have just turned out a new mix for XLR8R, and it’s not short on throwback jams: Modjo’s ‘Lady’, an edit of Fatboy Slim’s ‘Praise You’, and DJ Q’s version of Rosie Gaines’ ‘Closer Than Close’ all feature. The real ear-catcher, though, is a new version of Blackstreet’s 1996 hen night anthem ‘No Diggity’. Let’s be frank: there’s not a lot of heavy-lifting going on here, with Bondax hinting at some neat ideas without properly following through. Still, a jam is a jam is a jam, and it’s good to hear the young ‘uns paying their dues.
