In 1999, the Marley family officially gave permission to Funkstar De Luxe to remix some of the artist's songs. Within a year, a dozen of re-remixes flooded the market. Many DJ's layed their hands on the works of the most popular rastaman of all times. On this single, "Jammin'" gets some rework. The two first versions are very similar to what Funkstar De Luxe did with "Sun Is Shining" and "Rainbow Country". Nothing too original about this. The original remixed version (Track 3) stays into reggae/hip hop territories, arranged like a duo with MC Lyte. Then we come to the Olav Basoski's version: a powerful and dark rendition of the original, true to Olav's fashion. Certainly the main reason I own this single. This was Mr. Basoski's second experience remixing Bob Marley. Originally, he had worked on a standard House version of "Could You Be Love", unfortunately unreleased to this day for the general public.
