Coffee And Jazz Online Playlist

No you don’t have to drink coffee but if you need to get your perk up and groove on, might I point you to the Romina Jones Coffee And Jazz playlist.

While “Iron Fan’s” big room bounce is unbreakable, this EP sports 4 remixes in which each producer takes a decidedly different turn. The first from Rodux himself strips the track down to a chunky tech-house gallop. Joe Silva gets it down to hard-edged techno basics, and Edgar De Ramon funkifies and hammers away in a progressive tech-house stomper.
