MP3: Hard Mix - "Alright (Sumsun Remix)"

Hard Mix is doing its part to officially change the city of Greenville, South Carolina, to "Chillville." And while this might take more than sculpting mellow, soulful artifacts and blasting them on the city streets, we can't blame him for trying. His original "Alright" does plenty to regulate the heart rate and give a sense of well-being while rousing the soul with a male and female jousting with graceful melisma all over the place.

Follow it up with our celebrated local Sumsun (who earned top South Florida album of 2010) and his remix treatment and the thing gets a bit more intense. Bigger beats add a thrust of purpose and a heartbeat to the song, and we're feeling it.

Now it's true we've never visited the ever-more-chill Greenville, but this seems to be the version more in tune with a vibrant, technicolor sunset in West Palm Beach. Or cleaning out the lawn mower in the garage. Whichever.
