Chromeo's infectious hit, "Jealous (I Ain't With It)", appearing on their ultra funky 80's inspired record White Women, has seen its fair share of remixes. Notable remixers include Dillon Francis, The Chainsmokers, Benny Benassi, Solidisco, DJ Hoodboi, and DJ Sliink X Big O. Personally, none of these artists really captured the up-beat, easy going summery vibe of the original, with the exception of The Chainsmokers. Here to save the heavily remixed track is Hotel Garuda and Sweekuh. Hotel Garuda, consisting of Manilla Killa & Candle Weather, have been releasing sexy sax laden tracks for the past few months. If you haven't checked out their remixes of "White Noise - Disclosure X MNEK", "Rhythm Of The Night - Corona", or "Summertime Sadness - Lana Del Rey" then stop what you're doing right now and listen to them. Seriously. The other half involved in this remix is Sweekuh, aka Zach Cwieka, hailing from Philadelphia. Having previously worked with Manilla Killa on "Rock With You - Michael Jackson", a sultry number paying tribute to the King of Pop, it's obvious their styles mesh impeccably. That being said, have a listen to Chromeo - Jealous (Hotel Garuda X Sweekuh Remix), which Sweekuh states, "started with some saxophone sounds and an acapella mysteriously found on the internet. From there, the house gods ascended down upon Hotel Garuda and Sweekuh to give them direction and focus in creating a revolutionary brand of sax-infused-bouncey house-music, and deep-house." Enjoy!
