Exclusive: Basenji reworks JoJo for the track of your ’00s dreams

Words by Tara Smith

Baby It’s You.

Following the successful release of ‘Mistakes’ with Tkay Maidza, Sydney producer Basenji has tasked himself with reworking JoJo’s ‘Baby It’s You’.

I know what you’re thinking, JoJo can’t be made better, it’s already perfect. But take it from me, a devout ‘Too Little, Too Late’ fan, this bootleg is a match made in heaven.

Basenji has turned the RnB love ballad into a light, uplifting track that maintains its early 2000s roots, while modernising it in a way that works for 2018.

It’s the second release from a four-part bootleg series, which began with Hudson Mohawke’s ‘Chimes’. Each week in March, Basenji will premiere a new track from one of his favourite artists.
