Sartorially inclined Aussie teenager Just A Gent has been tearing his way up the dance world ladder over the past year, and a lot of that has been on the back of his infectious tune "Limelight," featuring the summery warble of vocalist R O Z E S. The track is all sugary good-vibes and anthemic hooks and it'll enjoy a healthy rinsing on the Gent's Just Turned 18 Tour, currently zig-zagging its way around Australia before the producer drops an EP of the same name in July.
Looking for a way to dirty up the track, Just A Gent sought out Angeleno upstart NGHTMRE on remix duties. Despite his scary name, the tune reads like a dream. "I've always loved Just A Gent's remixes so it was amazing to be asked to remix one of his biggest singles," NGHTMRE tells THUMP. "I love the vocal too. ROZES really killed it on this."
NGHTMRE, undoubtedly a multi-faceted producer, kept the evil eye at bay on this one, preferring to maintain the positive vibes of the original. "I love how the track is so melodic and has very friendly elements," he says. "I wanted to keep my remix on the same vibe and add my own signature elements and sounds to bring new life to it."
Never one to mince his words, Just A Gent's response to the remix was succinct: "He nailed this one."
