Future Smash Alert: Jax Jones Takes Us Deep With New Single

There's nothing better for the end of summer than a tropical dance song that takes you to the islands whenever you play it. It's even better when the song samples a classic by one of the greatest popstars in the world. Jax Jones has managed to do both of those things amazingly in his new song "Go Deep." For those unfamiliar, Jax is a DJ who helped create the waterslide summer anthem "I Got U" by Duke Dumont, which happened to sample the late and great Whitney Houston, #GodBlessHerSoul, and immediately shot to number 1 in the UK.

Jax has decided to use this winning formula for his own song that uses the vocals from Janet Jackson's own "Go Deep" to create a bouncy trop-pop banger. While the original was more of a midtempo R&B jam, Jones has warped Jackson's vocals to make it more girly and paired with that funky cowbell and jungle sounds instantly takes you away to paradise. And if things couldn't get better, Jax decided to add his signature steel drum hook that takes the best of Melissa Steel and Kyla La Grange's "The Knife" to shoot this straight to the dancefloor stratosphere and hopefully Jax Jones's first number 1 hit. And just think, an album of these songs may be on its way! Keep going at it Jax!
