DJ/producer MiMOSA is quickly making a name for himself since his appearance at Bonnaroo, achieving a place on the list of top ten acts of Bonnaroo by Spin and frequent airplay on mtvU. Now MiMOSA is taking on 2 Chainz with a remix of "I'm Different."
MiMOSA's remix adds instrumental depth to 2 Chainz vocal heavy single, but doesn't add much else to make it stand out from the original.
One of the upsides to MiMOSA's remix is its made for the dance floor beat. It's similar to the original track except for the heavier and more persistent percussion and, as expected, more bass.
It's difficult to give MiMOSA full credit for the impact of his remix though, since its so similar to the original he couldn't have had much work to do. He adds minor changes to the verse and substitutes the choruses for drops which aren't particularly heavy while focusing too much on an unappealing synth effect.
Admittedly, the minor changes he made to the verses have a large impact on the song, though they're nothing anyone listening to the original wouldn't think to add.
Overall, MiMOSA's remix of 2 Chainz' "I'm Different" is an improvement on the weak instrumentation of the original, but everything else is too similar to give MiMOSA full credit for how good it sounds.
