“Thinking About It” is a song by up-and-coming duo Just Kiddin‘ that dropped on Beatport back in July 2014 and it’s been one of my favorite songs in recent months. The track saw tons of play in DJ sets and mixes and for good reasons – a catchy vocal hook, a sexy House beat, and melodic synths for days. The Magician, Clean Bandit, Blonde, and Annie Mac all supported the track and it became many peoples’ soundtrack of last Summer. The lyrics really do get stuck in your head and that’s perfectly fine with me. The other day Just Kiddin’ reposted a remix of this track on SoundCloud, one that was not originally part of the remix package. The remix is by an artist named Get To Know and it was titled his “Futureboogie Remix”.

Available for free download, the Get To Know remix is quite fantastic. As the title might suggest, Get To Know’s remix oozes a funky boogie vibe that can only be achieved by certain French artists or by traveling back in time to the 1980s. The infectious vocal hook remains intact, but the drums, synths, and bass line bring us back a few decades with a track that is pure bliss. Larry Holcombe, who hails from London, has a very fitting name in Get To Know. He’s a newcomer who doesn’t have a ton of work on SoundCloud, nor many social media followers, but it’s obvious he soaks up as much funk as possible. He has an Azealia Banks remix, below, that is quite tasty as well – a long distance away from the original track.

Keep an eye on Get To Know because he’s certainly on to something, especially if you like Funk House. And show the dude some love for his free downloads!
