Robin Thicke 'Without You Lost' (Jumping Back Slash Remix)

South African producer Jumping Back Slash continues to impress us with his house/kwaito remixes with his new treatment of Robin Thicke's "Lost Without You"


At this point it's clear that Jumping Back Slash just can't be stopped — and why would we want him to be? His remix game has always been at the top of our list, and with every new release we hear from the South African producer his talent just seems to get heavier and heavier. This time we have a treat for you in the form of a mellowed-out kwaito/house treatment of Robin Thicke's sexy slow jam "Lost Without You," aptly rearranged even in JBS' new title, "Without You Lost." The perfectly chopped sample of Thicke's voice asking "How does it feel?" never quite opens up to the full lyric, messing with our brain's expectation of what's supposed to come next — just like a good rework should. Needless to say in this track's case, our answer to Thick's resounding question would be in case, "quite good, thank you." Stream + download "Without You Lost" below and keep an eye out for Jumping Back Slash's The Namhlanje EP out soon on Pollinate Records.
