It seems like that west coast vibe has really begun to rub off on Scraps McGee. Originally from Philadelphia, it’s great seeing this young producer really beginning to flourish. Maybe a little bit of California sunshine was just the inspiration he needed, because this new bootleg provides a breath of fresh life into an already mesmerizing classic. Utilizing the dreamy nature of the original tune, Scraps plugs in his own drum patterns to lift the track on top of a hip-hop layer. After a steadily progressing introduction, which carries itself along the drum kits, a jolt of dance-inspired synthesizers come crashing in. The track then carries itself back out again very nicely along the original’s vocals.
