JAY Z – “Open Letter (Danny! Remix)” I New Music

Danny open letter remix
Danny Swain, aka Danny!, gives the remix treatment to JAY Z‘s “Open Letter”; Jay’s response to his controversial trip to Cuba with Beyoncé and predecessor to latest album Magna Carta Holy Grail.

Danny! completely reworks Swizz Beatz and Timbaland‘s production, lacing the arrangements with horns and fanfares and an upbeat bassline, making the track reminiscent of JAY Z’s “Show Me What You Got” in its soulful sampling.  Gone are the ominous keys and minimal percussion, instead Danny! manages to turn an angsty record into what could be a Curtis Mayfield-style jam.
