If you are a hip-hop fan, you know The Runners or at least some of the songs they have produced. You may recognize the name from early DJ Khaled as one of the many names he would shout out in tunes like “I’m So Hood.” They are opening a new chapter in their career as BLVK JVCK, reprising in the dance world with some radio-friendly dance-pop that you might expect from hitmakers. Their new single “Mind Games” has been reworked by Manchester duo house Solardo and it is a treat.
There is still a hint of the poppy original with the vocal hook looped and pitched throughout the tune but not in the cheesy dance-pop way. God no. Then they add that thumping bassline that you expect from a Solardo.
“Remixing this Blvck Jvck track was a different outing for us,” Solardo tell Magnetic Mag. “The vocals were really hooky so we used that throughout and put some old school house production underneath it to give it the driving Solardo feel. It turned out well and has been going down well in our sets"
Let this be a soundtrack to your weekend and maybe it will be as wild as Disco Dave at school.
