Channelling Jess Ribeiro's existing haunting energy on "Hurry Back To Love", Melbourne producer Mikey Young (Total Control, Lace Curtain) transposes the folk vocal into a stellar jam invoking golden age disco with a tractor beam groove.
Mikey states, "I met Jess. She was super funny and off kilter. She said do a remix for me and make me sound like Donna Summer. So after trying to turn her into a bunch of Steve Reich tape loops for a day, I gave in and had a crack at unashamedly ripping on Moroder and Patrick Cowley as hard as I possibly could and coming up short of course but not tooooo short".
