Oooh, but Phil from Havêa’s remix of Url’s "Honey" is smooth as a knife through melted butter. The original is great in its own right, but this remix lays on the groove so thick it’s transportive.
Two bars in, you’re suddenly at a beach party on some tropical island in the early hours of the morning; it’s mid-Summer, the people are beautiful, your drink is delicious, the stranger at the bar is eyeing you as you sway around the dancefloor without a care in the world. Maybe there’s a flower in your hair. Maybe the stranger gave it to you. Maybe you want him to give you another. Doesn’t matter, as long as “Honey” is providing the soundtrack.
“Honey” is a super laid-back, nu-disco-inspired funky house jam with tight and refined mixing and quality. There’s a retro feel that presents itself as a fresh take, and it works beautifully. It’s unique and minimalist, with a swelling warmth and sparkle. It’s got a sophisticated, sensual vibe with a definite hedonistic undertone (maybe the aforementioned stranger does too?), and I am absolutely here for it.
