Life is full of Distractions. (For those of y’all trying to get work done, we in The DJBooth might be one of them.) If you can, though, tune out all extraneous sources of stimulation and give your full attention to Jaymes Young‘s latest feature—trust me, you’ll be glad you did. This promo single is nominally a remix of an instrumental cut by Bristol DJ/producer Phaeleh, but that’s being a little too modest. In addition to reshaping the record’s production into a more driving electronic groove, the unsigned alt-R&B buzzmaker lays down entirely new vocals. Feeling it? Then stay tuned. Young’s rendition of Distraction isn’t attached to a larger set, but we’ll keep you posted on the artist’s plans as further details emerge.
