Truth be told, the Deadbeats aren't much to write home about. Their sample-and-cycle pseudo downtempo comes across as a "chilled" take on Armand Van Helden's _Sampleslaya_ That is, the more obnoxious bits of hip hop looped ad nauseum. "Got It Goin' On" fits this mold well, it's not terribly good, not terribly interesting, and forgotten very quickly. That is, except for the Aim mix, which is an absolute corker. It manages to be groovy, sexy, uplifting and poppy, without sounding cheesy or contrived. The female vox are processed just right and sends shivers down one's spine. A similar effect turns the formally-obnoxious male rap into a blissful counterpart. The instrumental part of the track could stand quite well on its own, but blends the whole song into a perfect bit of downtempo pop. When compared to the uninspiring original, it is truly amazing just how much funk, soul and emotion is present in the Aim mix. Definitely on my list of top ten chillout tracks.
