Late last month, UK EDM group Rudimental unveiled the official U.S. version of their breakout single, Feel the Love. Despite a newly-added guest verse from MMG hitmaker Wale, the cut’s reception on our pages was surprisingly ambivalent. If that tweaked rendition didn’t do it for you, perhaps this more radical remix, courtesy of producer Woz, will be more to your tastes. In place of the original’s hi-octane drum ‘n’ bass backdrop, the beatsmith serves up a more lighthearted, hip hop-informed groove with a throwback feel. Childish Gambino provides bars to match the party-ready instrumental, kicking his opening 16 off with a callout to his favorite classic Nicktoon: “Yeah ‘Bino young n**ga with the most money / Take her home, skeet skeet-her like I’m Doug Funnie.” While this rendition of Feel the Love won’t be appearing on any larger project, the Wale-assisted version can be found on the American edition of Rudimental’s Home LP, available in stores and online.
