Ben E. King‘s iconic single “Stand By Me” got a contemporary makeover by the Canadian act Shèmce. If any of you are missing summer (aka, everybody), then this free download will bring a tear to your eye. Not only is the track as emotionally potent as the original, but its new-found tropical vibe reaches into the hearts of ravers everywhere, who have been increasingly attached to similar sounds in the house realm. You will find me standing by Shèmce if records like this keep hitting the virtual shelves. It’s always a pleasure to hear someone not screw up a classic tune like this, let’s all admit it. This was no screw up by any means. Get the flip for free below and add this gem to your collection.
