The highlight of the remix is the bass-line which he samples out of the
song, which proves to be very infectious. The remix is meant to make
folks dance, not necessarily showcase individual musicianship. If you
check out what effect the remix has on the dancefloor, you'll find that
in that respect it is highly succesful.

The Nuyorican Soul project is an excellent representation of dance,
jazz, latin jazz and soul and definitely worth picking up. Also see
