Puff Daddy – I’ll Be Missing You (TÂCHES Remix)
Though few things are as enjoyable as a stellar remix of a certified classic, nothing’s worse than an uninspired take on an inspiring song. Puff Daddy‘s 1997 smash hit “I’ll Be Missing You” won a Grammy, went triple platinum, and gave Jackie Chan serious vibes in Rush Hour 2, so updating it for 2014 was a tall order; luckily, TÂCHES was more than up to the task. He eases into the track with tasteful percussion, eventually introducing the “I’ll Be Missing You” vocals about one minute in. Noticeably absent on the remix are Puff Daddy and 112. Instead, TÂCHES focuses on Faith Evans‘s unforgettable chorus. He teases the listener, building the instrumental’s intensity as he reveals more and more of her vocals. And though waiting for the peak requires patience, it’s worth every second of restraint.
“I’ll Be Missing You (TÂCHES Remix)” is available as a free download via TÂCHES’s SoundCloud.
