Bob Marley is a hard man to remix. His songs are so simple and timeless that remixes usually fall flat, and at their worst border on sacrilege. But every now and again someone nails Marley’s spirit.
Cowp’s new remix of Bob Marley’s “Is This Love” is one of the best we’ve heard in a while. Cowp gives Marley’s timeless lyrics a chill, melodic reworking that feels fresh but keeps close enough to the original to capture some of Marley’s vibe:
Cowp is an up and coming 20 year old producer out of Boston University that’s one of our favorite new artists to watch. With an emotive and eclectic style influenced by such artists as Flume, Cashmere Cat, and Mr. Carmack, expect big and unique sounds to come.
