HeIsTheArtist - 'Sumthin' Sumthin' (Disco Funk Version)'
Ok! First of all, listeners who have heard the original version will definitely understand what this song is all about. This track is a cover that is also a remix of the original. With that in mind, it does try its hardest to stay true to its roots. The time wrapping done on the vocals does distract the listeners from the music a little and what seems like an untimely space between words are the vocals struggling to gel with the core vibe of the song. It is difficult indeed to customise a classic but proceeding with just an intention to make it won't cover the song fully unless the creator has in-depth knowledge of the missed opportunities within it.

Having said that, with a similarity true to the original it has a fast-paced rhythm along with some variations. The beat switches its accent over the course of the track, preserving the tempo to retain engagement. The melody is calm, nice and repetitive and most of the music is well mixed and mastered with punchy beats and enough compression.
