Jaw Jam has created a bit of a cult following by twisting often-obscure R&B songs into newly refurbished bangers – this time he tackles Mya’s forgotten ‘My Love Is Like… Wo’ from ’03. I was never fan of this song, it always irked me and in many ways represented Mya’s decline into the R&B abyss (Mya kinda is the original Ciara) and although it isn’t saved by this bootleg it is made a whole lot more interesting. Jam applies a rotund amount of bass and an intricate weave of vocal loops, basically reconstructing the entire song to the point of it being almost unrecognisable, which in this case is a good thing all round. Listen up.
Sidenote – it’s pretty interesting that unlike Aaliyah and Brandy etc, Mya’s never been a producers favourite to sample. Fear of Flying is an album that still bumps – have folk forgotten that?
