While French electro troupe The Shoes wait to see if it pays to cast Jake Gyllenhaal in your latest video as a loner exacting revenge on the world for not landing a spot on the US Olympic fencing team (featuring 80s-style-training-sequence shots of pec deck butterfly reps and treadmill sweat!), the rest of us can enjoy this remix by fellow Frenchman and Ed Banger affiliate SebastiAn. Monsieur SebastiAn drops the tempo a couple notches so you don’t need to be triple maxxxed on a treadmill to catch the groove, and amps up the arms-in-the-air factor by zoning in on the best part of the song- that spell-a-long chant explaining that it’s finally “T-I-M-E-T-O-D-A-N-C-E in the city!” Yep, there are similarities to another French electro-disco jam crammed with spelling bee aficionados and pop/slap bass, but when you’ve got an anthem on your hands, why mess with the recipe?
