Ray of light: Brilliant, mind-blowing remix of 'I Got a Woman'

Rising dance producer Nicolas Jaar offers this brilliant remix of "I Got a Woman," which holds onto the tiniest shred of Ray Charles' classic boogie, yet switches the entire vibe of the song.

Like James Blake, Jaar uses truncated, tweaked-out vocal effects -- not for their lyrical content, but for the desperate, ambient longing they can evoke when interpolated into minimalist beats. Like Blake, his work is genius.
