Jason Nevins’ ticket to fame was his remix of Run DMC’s “It’s Like That” which can be compared to JXL’s mix of “A Little less Conversation”, it was an instant smash worldwide. Besides his remix work he also releases his own material which can be categorized as “euro-dance”.
Since it is a download only single we can skip the design part of our review and move on to the music directly. It seems there are a radio mix and a club mix, we reviewed the radiomix.
Jason Nevins takes a harder approach to the single than Paul Oakenfold did. The last one kept closer to the original track.
The bass on this remix is more upfront and he added the sound of guitars with a lot of distortion to the original melody and brass section. Besides the bass and guitars it seems all remixers of Elvis music seem to follow JXL’s idea of adding “carnival” effects and a lot of “bleeps”.
The original song has several “stops” (Stop, Look And Listen) by itself, but with the additional music the song isn’t very pleasant to listen to, it is cut up too much and the music emphasizes that too much. The information on the Apple Music Store mentions a “supercharged rhythm section”, we’d rather call it an “overcharged rhythm section”.
Perhaps this tougher mix will please several “new” fans, but we guess it will be too much for the average Elvis fan, we don’t think they will buy a lot of Metallica anyway. If only he kept closer to his “euro-pop” style, then this remix would probably appeal to a lot more fans.
