Comment: This Jay Dee (aka J Dilla) remix was originally featured on a 1999 Superrappin 12 inch released on Groove Attack Recordings. J-88, which was nothing more than an alias for Slum Village (originally consisting of Conant Gardens Detroit residents T-3, Baatin, and Jay Dee), released their Best Kept Secret album in 2000, the same year SV released the heavily sweated Fantastic Vol. 2. The Best Kept Secret jawn consisted primarily of remixes and leftover material from 1996's long shelved Fantastic Vol. 1 (finally saw official release in 2005). On this particular track, Jay Dee delivers a smooth, mellow beat which embodies early Slum Village's distinctive signature sound. It's a very straightforward, yet unique sound. This remix is more chill than the original "Look of Love", removing the handclaps and scratch samples, while adding a soothing female vocal sample, trademark SV emcees talking over one another in rhythmic fashion, and a keyboard melody which gives the track a sense of pace.
