New Audio: Rhtyhm Scholar Shares a Woozy Remix of Kriss Kross’ 1992 Classic “Jump”

Throughout this site’s 12 year history, there have been few artists that I’ve written about as much as the awe-inspiring, ridiculously prolific, New York-based producer, DJ remixer and JOVM mainstay Rhythm Scholar. During that same period, the JOVM mainstay has built a national and international profile for slickly produced, crowd-pleasing mashups and remixes.

The JOVM mainstays’ latest single is a thorough and woozy rework of Kriss Kross‘ 1992 classic “Jump” that features 43 samples, including the introductory chords to Van Halen‘s 1984 classic hit “Jump,The Jackson Five’s “ABC,” Super Mario Brothers, House of Pain‘s 1992 classic “Jump Around,” Ice Cube‘s “Jackin’ For Beats,” Public Enemy‘s “B Side Wins AgainAretha Franklin‘s “Jump To It,” Kriss Kross’ “I Missed the Bus” and a host of others while retaining the duo’s brash, youthful vocals.

The end result gives the original a fresh spin while putting in a completely new light and context.
