Jamie xx – “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times) (Skepta Remix)”
For the past couple of weeks, Drake and OVO co-founder Oliver El-Khatib have been using their Beats 1 show OVO Sound Radio to premiere some new material. That trend continued in tonight’s third installment, with El-Khatib debuting a new remix of Jamie xx’s strong Song Of The Summer contender “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” during his set. The new version features a verse from London grime MC Skepta, who also showed up on one of the Drake remixes premiered on the first OVO Sound Radio show and made a surprise appearance at last weekend’s OVO Fest. The remix also changes up the beat, turning the weightless crystalline float of the original into a hyped-up thump and speeding up the Persuasions sample and Popcaan’s intro. Listen below.
