Emil & Friends : You Can (Body Language Cover)

Yet another Emil & Friends cover/remix that borders being better than the original track. This time Emil takes on Body Language’s RnB jammy jam, “You Can” which delves deeper into that slinky balearic RnB zone. D’Angelo watch out, there is a new set of abs in town.

“This original body language song is a sparkler, that is for sure. When I sit down and try to put a spin on a song that means a lot to me, it is either easy as pie or painstakingly difficult to accomplish. This one just bubbled up nice and quick. I wanted to take the song, slow it down, give it a hall and oates meets the xx meets junior boys meets bon iver meets aeroplane vibe. I listened to a lot of Kind of Blue- by miles davis, when mixing the track which got me in the mood to really remove all the arbitrary elements and stick with the low-fat simplistic approach. Simple defines sex in music, especially when you slow things down to bed-creaking tempos like this. Those who I define as sexy seem to bite their lower lip to this cover, which is all I wanted to accomplish. You Can, but you won’t. Well I kind of just did, and I’ll do it again. Props to the Body Language kids, get psyched for their new music.” – Emil
