Why do we like this?
It's amazing how the smallest tweaks in a song can produce something entirely different. Dam-Funk's remix of "Summertime Clothes" is nothing drastic- the song structure stays nearly the same and he only replaces maybe three of the song's existing layers with his own signature drum machine sound and some floaty synths. With these minor changes though, Dam-Funk extracts and enhances the happy-go-lucky vibe of "Summertime Clothes" while keeping in tact the elements that made it great to begin with.

At the same time though, while all the sentiments are still there, the remix has a very different take on their expression. The warm synth tones and skipping beat take the bouncy excitement for the freedom and warm weather of the original song and decide to bask in its glory instead. This distinction makes Dam-Funk's remix an excellent counterpoint to the original "Summertime Clothes": sometimes summer makes us want to run around in the sprinklers, but sometimes you just want to sip a cocktail poolside and watch the sunset.
