Four years after its release, Afrojack's "Take Over Control" still acts like catnip for EDM bros, unparalleled in its ability to inspire manic fits of fist-pumping. Today, the track got a Pretty Woman-style makeover by the Orange County-born, Philadelphia-based producer Sweekuh, who flipped it into something almost unrecognizable—and awesome. Wiping away those screeching synths and stomach-clenching drops, Sweekuh keeps the track slinking along with a warm, rubbery bass. Eva Simon's singing is pitched way down—or maybe even replaced with Sweekuh's own voice—giving the once-girlish vocals a distinctly smoky texture. Now can someone give the real Afrojack a makeover, too?
