Jon White (aka Nevada) has just dropped his debut single which features samples of Mark Morrison‘s ‘Return Of The Mack‘ along with an added verse from Fetty Wap.
We featured ‘Return Of The Mack’ earlier this year, as it’s been 20 years since its release, but this remake serves as an homage to mark the track’s 20th anniversary. It’s fresh, modernised and still as funky as it ever was!
I look forward to hearing more from Nevada in the future but for now, this needs to be cranked up, skanked out to and enjoyed to its fullest!
What are your thoughts of this remake? Has this modernisation worked well? Please let us know your thoughts or own #FeelGoodFriday suggestions in a comment below or via our social media.

Bloc Party‘s music style is interesting as it has a lot of variety.
Chronologically following their songs you can hear how they have experimented and evolved their music production to the point that it’s at today.
‘Flux‘ is said to be the song that began their musical transformation; it initiated the use of electronic sounds within their songs. Which continuously grew with the introduction of dark-electronic instruments and drum beats.
Although ‘Flux‘ is one of their older songs (2007), the modern sounds and techniques they experimented with are still enjoyable this many years later.
Unfortunately 2 of Bloc Party‘s members have left the band since, yet there news of a new album this year!

Today’s #MellowMonday song has a pretty interesting style; it’s a relatively new and modern one. Here with a ‘neo-soul’ genre is Jesse Boykin’s III‘s song ‘Plain’.
This type of music is a unique collection of modern-day electronic sounds mixed alongside other older, soul-styled aspects.
Jesse Boykins III claims influence from Stevie Wonder; this can be heard in his 2014 album ‘Love Apparatus’ even though it features modern piano, synths and electronic samples. I really like the style Boykins creates through his music; listening to his albums I can notice how it develops in a variety of ways, in each song.
Critics say he has kept up very well with the fast developing styles of R&B, but in his own original way; which I truly appreciate!
Watch the pretty interesting dance-lyric video for Jesse Boykins III’s ‘Plain’. This is my favourite song from ‘Love Apparatus’!
