In mid-June, Brooklyn DJ collective The Rub made their grand entrance into The DJBooth with Feel You, an understated alt-R&B jam which earned positive feedback from our readers. Today, the record returns in remixed form, courtesy of underground beatsmith Marco Polo. This rendition of the cut retains the original‘s chill vibe but, as you’d expect from the man behind the boards, has a stronger hip-hop influence. In addition to fortifying the beat with heavier percussion and a more robust piano loop, Polo supplements D.C. songstress Misun‘s vocals with a bombastic guest 16 from M.O.P.‘s Lil Fame. Is this grittier remix an improvement over the original? As always, y’all get to lay down the final verdict. Marco Polo’s take on Feel You is part of forthcoming EP The Rub Remixed, dropping digitally July 30.
