MAKJ has an excellent track record on DJcity. The majority of his releases have made the daily Hot Box chart, many of which have also appeared on the monthly Top 50.
His latest offering, a throwback-style remix of Joan Jett’s 1982 anthem, “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” is likely to do the same. The track features moombahton and twerk influences and a prominent Jay-Z sample.
“I love the idea of blending genres,” MAK tells us. “I’ve always done it in my sets, and I wanted to make something I could play live, hence the idea of mixing Joan Jett with Jay-Z. They say opposites attract.”
Preview the remix below and download it exclusively on DJcity.
