Grammy Award-winning producer DJ White Shadow teams up with LA’s DJ Drew for a disco-pop reboot of Milky‘s 2002 cult classic, “Just The Way You Are.” The single, which arrives just in time for pool party season, retains the infectious charm of the original’s melodies and trades in acoustic guitars for analog synths. The DJcity Records release is a masterclass in dance-pop, delicately walking the line between the familiar and the future.
DJ White Shadow and DJ Drew’s take on “Just The Way You Are” is big for the main stage, groovy for the club, and just sweet enough for the radio. Download the track on DJcity and Beatsource and stream it on all major platforms now.
