Who doesn’t love The Chordettes’ timeless 1950s classic Mr Sandman, originally written by Pat Ballard? Its doo-woppy barbershop pop is utterly infectious and oodles of bum-bum-bum fun. Chicago drummer and beatsmith Cofresi breathes new life into the oldie but goodie with a wickedly brilliant flip entitled Sandman, on which he douses the track with sharp trap chops and extra whimsical springs to create a modern makeover. Remixing Mr Sandman could go wrong in so many ways, but Cofresi hits the bulls-eye with this elastic bouncing edit that retains the original’s sugary sweetness. Grab the track, here.
