LA producer SNBRN has become a favorite through countless house remixes like Mark Morrison's "Return Of The Mack", Ace Of Base's "All She Wants", and Pretty Ricky's "Grind With Me". Following up his debut original release "Raindrops", he is back with another remix, this time officially taking on Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing". Unlike Kygo's mellowed out remix of the song we heard last year, SNBRN goes with the more upbeat club ready route with a funky bassline, strong drums, tropical horns, and just the right amount of vocal sample to sing along to. You can expect to hear this one in clubs and by the pool all summer long.
Here are a few words from SNBRN himself on the remix:
“This track has been a staple in my live sets for months now. I wanted to create something super funky and upbeat, but still have that soul to it. For a long time the instrumental had no hook, until one night I started cutting up old 80's records and found the perfect fit. I am finally able to present to you my official remix of Marvin Gaye’ "Sexual Healing" – Ohhhhh Baabyyy.” – SNBRN
