Back in April I posted a remix of Just Kiddin’s track “Thinking About It” by a relatively unknown producer named Get To Know. The song was full of funk, or “Futureboogie” as he called it, and I made sure to keep this British artist on my radar. Jump ahead a few months and late last night I opened by inbox to find Get To Know had sent me his latest work. Get To Know (real name Larry Holcombe) has remixed Jamie XX’s beautiful track “Loud Places” and he has put his Futureboogie stamp on the track.
Anyone familiar with the original version of “Loud Places” knows it’s not much of a dance track – but more of a ballad with excellent opportunity for sing-a-long. Get To Know didn’t do anything crazy to turn his remix of “Loud Places” into a dance floor destroyer or anything – he merely added some synth layers and a fat bass line. The singalong opportunity is still there and this nine-minute song has exactly the Summer vibes you might be looking for as you start your 4th of July celebrations. Oh, and you can’t forget about the guitar solo around the middle of the song – what a gem!
Get To Know is still building his following, so if you like what you hear make sure to follow him on Facebook and SoundCloud. Cheers!
