First Listen

Mario "Let Me Love You (Lapalux Bootleg Remix)"

UK-based producer Lapalux, hot off the release of his latest EP on Brainfeeder, When You're Gone, has passed along this remix of Mario's "Let Me Love You," a song you undoubtedly heard if your radio was on at any point in early 2005. On his version of the tune, Lapalux (a.k.a. Stuart Howard, pictured above) adds a plethora of noises to Ne-Yo's and Scott Storch's uncluttered original, including a multitude of percussion and extra synth lines. Mario's smooth voice has also been totally reconstructed, having been pitched both up and down, chopped into bits, and layered. As an extra bonus, unlike the song's official remix from 2005, Lapalux's bootleg remix does not contain rapped verses by T.I. and Jadakiss. Lapalux will be touring across Europe and Australia in May and June, and you can find his current summer schedule after the jump.
