Jessie Ware "Sweet Talk (Saux Remix)"
Amsterdam-based producer/DJ/musician Saux (a.k.a. Jurian van deer Hoeven) has offered up a remix of "Sweet Talk," one of the sultry songs from Jessie Ware's recently-released LP, Devotion. Saux morphs the R&B sashay of Ware's original into an easygoing and warm house bounce, opting to cut up the soulful chanteuse's vocals almost beyond recognition. Certain lines surface from the beat, like the main refrain, "You give me the sweet talk," but in Saux's hands, Ware's melodies are draped in shadows and stretched thin, like the robust pop singer's friendly ghost.
