The fastest route between two points is a straight line. Thus, Los Angeles-based producer Kennedy Jones remixing Elvis Crespo’s well-known merengue anthem “Suavamente” was the absolute perfect bridge between underground dance’s dalliance with Latin rhythms followed by the embrace of rap’s “trap” iteration. Now, roughly one year after blowing up the Internet with the initial version of his remix, the VIP version used by Jones (and others, too) to set festivals (and EDM rooms both big and small alike) on fire in 2013 finally sees free release. Arguably one of the most vaunted party weapons in recent memory that a DJ can have in his arsenal is now available for public consumption, with the promise of a turnt up peak-hour fiesta being an absolute guarantee.
