After gatecrashing the party big style in 2011 with a series of fantastic releases on Rush Hour's Direct Current offshoot, BNJMN has been a bit quiet of late. He's clearly still in the game, as he's delivered the stand out remix of J Cub and Bibi collaboration "Crying Over You". Riding a wave of garage style vocal edits, driving beats and mutant cowbells, BNJMN's mix strikes the perfect balance between bittersweet goodness (check the tear-jerking chords and vocal cuts) and sparse dancefloor hustle. The original version is actually rather downbeat, so it's a remarkable transformation. For the record, there's also another fine rework from RNDM that sounds like Todd Edwards after a fistful of downers.
J Cub's latest incarnation, with the 1/3 Quartet (which features players who have previously backed Ian Brown, The Prodigy and Groove Armada in the past) introduces itself with this nu-soul funker which keeps a tight studio sound thanks to some warm Rhodes and unechoed horns. For a more digital and uptempo nu-disco rework, turn to Nicholas's accompanying rework.
