Honorebel Mention/Best Remix
Adele & Jamie XX vs. Cecile, Timberlee and Mr. Lexx—Rolling In The Heat (The Heatwave Remix)
Our very own Gabriel Heatwave over in the UK took this one to another dimension, skillfully blending Jamie XX’s remix of one of the biggest singles of the decade thus far with distinctive yardie vocals from Timberlee, Cecile & Mr Lexx. I (Theory) ran this tune every chance I got this year, and people always went nuttz for it regardless of the setting. (It probably didn’t hurt that that Diplo guy was playing it at festivals either.) Jamie XX’s remix was already rather amazing, but The Heatwave really brought it to the club adding the necessary airhorns and elements of “Bubble Like Soup,” “Hot Like We“, “Bounce A Gal” and even the NOLA classic “Iko Iko.” Keep an eye on your girlfriend when this one drops…the ting maddd.
