This is a mashup between Juan Maclean vocalist Nancy Whang and Gavin Russom (who appears to have deaded his Black Meteoric Star moniker). It's called a remix—understandably, that's a way cooler denotation than mashup—but basically grabs Whang's vocal, echoes it out and sits it atop Russom's flirty spiral synths of his own creation, weighted by drum machine karate chops. It really highlights Whang's versatile strength, the flexibleness of her voice, as she sounds just as at home over the silk of the original and the hard chop of Russom's remix.
