Earlier this year, rookie girl duo 2WinD debuted with their single, “Sorry.” While 2WinD’s take on a slightly bluesy/jazzy piano grind had its own kind of groove, Korean-Canadian rapper and producer D.Kash wanted to add his own flavor to the track with a remixed version. And the remix for “Sorry” is pretty sweet.
No need to apologize for good music, especially when you’re giving your raps a groovier track to ride over, D.Kash.
The lyrics he spits over 2WinD’s song creates a completely different feel, bringing out the beat, while hitting it harder at the same time. But if you’re not into D.Kash (short for Diamond Kash) and the rapping punctuation he adds to “Sorry,” have no fear, 2WinD’s soaring vocals are here. What D.Kash does well within this remix is fill in the lines of “Sorry’s” beat with his colorful rhymes, while allowing 2WinD’s original vocals plenty of moments to shine.
Does “Sorry” sound like anything else to you? Something you can’t quite put your finger on? We had that same problem with 2WinD’s original version of this song. If you listen to the jazzy piano and 2WinD’s rippling vocals in the original version of “Sorry,” it starts to sound eerily similar to 2NE1‘s “It Hurts.” The second we heard that D.Kash was going to be remaking 2WinD’s “Sorry,” we were unsure if we would be getting more of the same similarity. Though we’re glad to say D.Kash’s remix of 2WinD’s “Sorry” sounds fresh and new, even with a hint of that same bluesy spin from before.
Listen to the track, see for yourself and tell us who did it better…
