The school year may have begun, but Andy Allo‘s UnFresh summer isn’t quite over. The latest entry in the Sacramento R&B singer’s seasonal remix series, following last month’s Fly Away (Gotta Remix), finds frequent behind-the-boards collaborator HonestNotes putting a new spin on 2010 video single Hooked. I’m tempted to declare this a remix in name only, because it shares little with the breezy original besides the occasional brief vocal snippet. Which isn’t to say it doesn’t excel on its own merits; featuring a four-on-the-floor rhythm section accompanied by ebbing and flowing synths, HonestNotes’s rendition will undoubtedly leave fans of stylish, retro-inspired club music fiending for more. The album version of Hooked can be found on Andy Allo’s UnFresh LP, released independently in 2009.
