Jump Smokers and Zookëper remix The Ready Set’s “Give Me Your Hand (Best Song Ever).”
A few months ago, The Ready Set hosted a debaucherous pool party in their “Give Me Your Hand (Best Song Ever)” video. The clip was so epic, in fact, that we had to ask ourselves: “There’s no way this thing could possibly get more ridiculous, right?” Welp, FOOL ME TWICE, because two remix crews have somehow managed to wring a few more drops of ridiculousness: DJs Jump Smokers and Zookëper have each served up two supercharged reboots of The Ready Set’s party anthem.
Listen to JumpSmokers and Zookëper’s “Give Me Your Hand (Best Song Ever) (Remix)” after the jump.
Now, let’s be honest. Remixes can be tricky (especially when the song in question has “Best Song Ever” in the title). Thankfully, both DJ acts take the best parts of the original and straight-up amplify them to the nth degree. After all, to quote that AT&T commercial, “If you really like it, you want more! You want more!” (We might also watch too much TV.)
In their remix, Jump Smokers take the original’s four-on-the-floor snare intro and turn it into a bright and piercing clap drum just in time for a full-on bass-thumping verse, while Jordan wails through the chorus and readies our bodies for the obligatory dubstep breakdown. Zookëper, on the other hand, take a slightly more house-minded approach: Shimmery, pulsing synths rule in this interpretation, and they have fun with vocal samples spliced all over darn the place. But don’t worry — Jordan’s spitfire verses and the song’s ineffable catchiness remain entirely intact. The question is, what kind of party would do these remixes justice?
