Y’all know that we’ve been hyping up the UK’s Katy B for a minute now, and it seems like she’s set to become a mainstream star over on her side of the pond. However, even star status is not enough sometimes when you try to cover a classic.

However, Katy kills this remake of the 1988 House classic Good Life by Inner City. Her voicals are on point, and Rinse FM founder Geeneus does an excellent job of flipping the original, keeping the house vibe while adding elements of UK Funky to the mix.

Check it. (via Whitney and XLR8R)

    I was weary of pressing play on this one since the original is a true classic that still sounds as fresh today as the day it came out 20+ years ago, but they actually did it justice. Respect!
