With just the right blend of dreamy vibes and dancefloor-focused grooves, Jstar’s remix of Sam and the Womp’s “Ice Cream Man” is a thoughtfully executed reminder that music is, above all, meant to be enjoyed.

A stylistic twist away from the original’s nod to drum and bass, all the potent elements are reframed. Jstar wisely takes a strong tune and pushes it further; this is pop double-dipped in dubwise. The catchy melody, the standout trumpet work, the hearty low-end, the whimsical lyrics – it all adds up to a unique sonic treasure, an ode to eternal summer.

Regardless of your preferred flavor, scoop this one up while the puns aren’t yet cold… and before summertime arrives once again!
