Diplo and Skrillex first announced their side project Jack U in 2013, though it wasn’t until this year when the superstar producer-DJs put the moniker to good use. Following summer club-banger “Take U There”, a collaboration with “Hideaway” singer Kiesza, Jack U has released a remix of Beyonce‘s “7/11.”
This revamp follows the song’s official remix package, plus a “Christmas addition” from Beyonce’s original collaborator Detail and French Montana – proof positive that, like the rest of us, producers are spinning all their hands up. (“7/11″ first appeared on last month’s four-disc Platinum Edition of her 2013 self-titled album.) However, Jack U’s high-octane remix is likely the first to cue kung fu film-style sound effects when Third Ward Trill commands to “smack, smack it in the air.” Subtle, it isn’t.
