Remixing a song like CHINAH’s “We Go Back” isn’t an easy task. Reworking the shimmering single, with its intricate guitar and warm vocals, requires an understanding of what makes the initial track so compelling in the first place.
Luckily, Stockholm production duo Jarami prove that they can handle the task, imbuing the original with bouncy energy and woozy synths. Their flip of “We Go Back” is certainly uptempo, but it doesn’t sacrifice the emotional resonance of CHINAH’s original.
Skizzy Mars breezes in for a quick and enjoyable verse, but the main attractions here are Jarami’s manipulation of the track’s vocals and the mellow guitar solo on the outro.
Make sure you get “We Go Back” in your rotation, because once you emerge from winter hibernation this will be a record you want locked and loaded.
