Tiga's 'Woke' Gets a Pouncing Remix From Jamie Jones: Premiere

Tiga is chasing his late-summer single "Woke" with a new EP of remixes for the track. Now, Billboard Dance has the pleasure of premiering Jamie Jones' staticky house rework of the hypnotic record.

The Hot Creations boss replaces the original's acidic beat and offbeat saxophone sample with a wobbling bassline and softly building keys that underlay Tiga's voguing spoken-word chant.

“People may have a hard time empathizing with a successful DJ, or anyone who associates an annoying buzzword with anything approaching enlightenment," Tiga said in a statement about the track. "But I don’t think it’s that hard to relate to feeling like you’ve entered into a lopsided bargain with a magic box that is more or less designed to hack its way into your self-image. Call it an empty gesture, but as I hurled my phone into the water, it was very much an instance of facing up to something I knew wasn’t good for me, and finding some sense of release, if only for a moment.”
