Up and coming DJ / producer Jean Juan has successfully reworked a recent hip hop classic into a haunting deep house track. With the voice of hip hop artist Young Jae, ‘My Way’ brings the alluring vocal lines of Fetty Wap’s eponymous 2015 hit song as well as delicate electronic beats, perfectly bridging the gap between the two genres, bringing the song straight back to the dancefloor .
