Why do we like this?

I’m not sure what it is about the combination of R&B and house that gets it so right. Maybe it’s the low-frequency vocals, or the mutual dependence on sampling, but R&B tracks can make 4/4 beats sound smooth in a way that hip hop and other genres seem to struggle with.

Jared Jackson’s house remix of H.E.R.’s "Wait For It" is the best example of this I’ve seen recently. The original track is slow, spacey, and sensual – Jackson is able to maintain this minimalism as he loops the vocals, speeds them up slightly, and adds a house beat. It recaptures all of the track’s original appeal, in a format fit for the dance floor. He nods at this in the description – “This is for club use. Free WAV download for my DJ’s…”

Jackson has been busy putting releases out, both on his own and with the SoCal label Soulection. Still in the earlier stages of his career, there is hopefully much more innovative house music to come in the future.
