Just when you thought an iconic Fugees track couldn’t get better, a perfectly executed remix proves you wrong. Jake Shore has worked his magic, churning out yet another house heater with “SOFTLY.”
“SOFTLY” sees Jake Shore put a modern spin on an all-time classic, reworking “Killing Me Softly” into an all-new, feel-good house sound. Opening with Lauryn Hill’s timeless vocals, the tune quickly jumps into a four-on-the-floor house beat. The second drop takes things a step further, beautifully chopping her vocals to add another layer of depth.
While still a relatively new face in the scene, Jake Shore is experiencing a breakneck rise, amassing over 100,000 monthly listeners on Spotify since launching his project in 2020. Earlier this year, he released his tracks “Dreamin’,” “Hectic” and “Freak 2 The Core,” building the hype around one of house music’s brightest producers. The Chicago-born artist is now poised to keep the momentum alive and keep his hot streak going in 2023.
