Get used to one style and you know I might switch

Micky Slim is blowing up a gale this year, and will continue to do so if he keeps putting out remixes like this. This whitelabel release is sure to make it to a full official release at some point, and if it doesn't, I'll eat my hat.

Taking a party classic and giving it a remix is usually an easy way to get a reaction from the dancefloor, but when it's done THIS well, it's even guaranteed a reaction like no other.

House of Pain - "Jump Around" (Micky Slim Remix) [White]

It starts off for the first 1 min 33 secs by giving you the odd recognisable cue along with the "Jump" shouts, giving you a hint as to what is to come, or what you think is to come. 1:54 and the bassline kicks in and raises the roof. Then after 3 mins, you get the breakdown, and you've gotta give props to Micky Slim for basically letting the original play for a whole minute, until the chorus, which is when it gets interesting. 4:40 mins is when the motherload hits. Now if the dancefloor isn't going mad for it by now, they have no soul. I would have the next minute of of the tune on a loop for a good few minutes and I don't think I'd ever get bored :)

In fact, maybe that leaves it open for a bit of editing...bring the track in at the breakdown, so that they think it's just the original, then just loop the rest of the track for a few minutes once the bassline comes in.
