When was the last time Gloria Estefan was relevant with the young'ns or sounded anywhere near approaching hip? Was it when she did that duet with 'N Sync in 1999? I think so, but that Top 40 hit, "Music of My Heart," was never meant for the clubs. This remix of "Conga" is. When Brendan Scott isn't fulfilling his day-job duties at American Apparel, he's usually behind the decks at many a club—from Redcap to Rotture—under the guise of DJ Pocketrock-it. As a part of Rotture residency Neon
, he spins a wide selection of original electronic tunes and remixes alongside fellow DJs Patricia Furpirse, Tre Slim and DJ Koolaid. Pocketrock-it has taken stabs at his own material before, and this electronica version of "Conga" is his latest creation.
