Usher's Climax remixed by Jo'burg based G'Sparks

Up & Coming
Usher's Climax

Not one generally for mainstream music, this excellent song from R'n'b singer Usher was completely off my radar until very recently - and then this funky afro inspired version of the track came to my attention from Jo'burg based Congolese remixer G'Sparks.

Its a pretty simply remix but he's hit all the right points of building just enough tension and slowely affording release through breaking down the main rhythm with off-timing, filtered pans, typically-South African pads/washes and so on.

Enjoy ;)
